The Tokyo office was established in 1987 promptly after the change in Japanese regulations allowing foreign lawyers to establish offices in Japan and has developed a leading reputation in:
- Capital Markets
- Mergers & Acquisitions
- Financial Services
- Technology, Media & Telecommunications
- Commercial Real Estate
We maintain a small and efficient office, and we pride ourselves on the professional yet friendly relationships among our lawyers.
The office is interested in U.S.-qualified lawyers directly out of law school or with experience in capital markets and/or M&A in particular.
Japanese language capability (which need not be native level) is required. For associates who are not native Japanese speakers, a private Japanese language lesson is offered once a week.
