Freshfields advises Tesco on 129-store Japanese sale
Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer has won a mandate to advise Tesco on the sale of its Japan business as the firm gears up to relocate its latest corporate partner to the region. The firm is advising Tesco on the sell-off of its 129 stores in Japan, a move the retail giant confirmed last month, stating that it “cannot build a sufficiently scalable business” in the region. The Freshfields team handling the sale is understood to be led by Tokyo head James Lawden, although the firm declined to comment.
