Based on our mission, we promote and respect diversity in our firm, and providing the best legal services to our clients with an approach that reflects these values.

Diversity & Inclusion Statement

Nishimura & Asahi is committed to
fostering and strengthening diversity and inclusion at our firm.

We believe the ideal organization is one in which a wide array of skills come together and function cohesively, and where, collectively and individually, there is respect and support for the different forms of diversity, including gender, age, nationality, race, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation and gender identity, in all areas where we operate. Diversity and inclusion have been essential to our growing success, enabling us to respond to the needs of our clients across jurisdictions by providing them with multi-faceted approaches and different perspectives.

Managing Partner


In line with our firm’s policy of proactively promoting diversity and inclusion (“D&I”), we established a D&I Promotion Council, comprised of our lawyers, other professionals, and staff members, whose mission is to implement specific measures in line with our policy. We have also established a Diversity Promotion Office, a dedicated department within our firm with the mandate to promote diversity and inclusion, which collaborates with our D&I Promotion Council on D&I-related matters.
