Our combined firm provides an extraordinarily powerful value proposition. Housing all of these synergistic practices under one roof, and further increasing our resource scale, we have the capability to: serve a multinational client base, on in-bound, out-bound and domestic projects, by providing expert, timely and cost-efficient advice, across a full range of legal issues, and in the largest, most complex, cross-sector transactions.

We are proud of our long tradition of serving international business and legal communities and our reputation as one of the largest full-service law firms in Japan. Our combined expertise enables us to deliver comprehensive advice on virtually all legal issues that may arise from a corporate transaction, including those related to mergers and acquisitions, finance, capital markets and restructuring / insolvency, and litigation / arbitration. The majority of our lawyers are bi-lingual and experienced with communicating, drafting and negotiating across borders and around the globe.
