A cross-office Herbert Smith Freehills team, led by the firm's Tokyo office, advised Mitsui on all aspects of the transaction.

"This was an exciting fast-paced deal to work on for Mitsui, demonstrating the strength of our Japanese outbound M&A practice and our ability to leverage network resources for clients," said Tokyo corporate partner Lex Papasolomontos, who led the deal team advising Mitsui. 

Lex was assisted by Tokyo associates James Willis and Elisa Hayashi.
