Cross-border Practice

In recent years, companies of all sizes have had more dealings with other overseas companies, establishing their own overseas subsidiaries, and entering into joint ventures with foreign companies, as economic activities have become increasingly borderless while the Japanese market has stagnated under an economic depression.

Our firm retains the services of a number of lawyers with foreign legal qualifications having studied at overseas law schools and who benefit from the experience working in the legal departments of international corporations’ overseas offices. We have handled many international cases, and have connections with law offices and networks in about ten other countries and regions around the world, through which we have built up a strong track record of cooperation.

Our network in Japan comprises ten bases, and we can correspond on overseas cases such as in the case of trouble with an overseas company, or when expanding a company internationally.
