Our Team

We are a team of Japanese and German attorneys with many years of experience in cross-border transactions for multinational clients. Due to our strong interaction as a multinational team, we are able to address legal matters from different perspectives, combining the knowledge of skilled Japanese attorneys with the viewpoint of foreign legal experts and their understanding of overseas clients requirements. When handling cross-border enquiries we always work in teams to ensure seamless communication with the German and Japanese counterparties involved at the client’s end. Adding entrepreneurial thinking to our legal expertise we aim to establish a close relationship with our clients to secure their legal interests when realizing their economic goals.
