The Shanghai representative office is staffed by three Japanese lawyers, Takashi Nomura, Satoshi Tojo, and Seita Kinoshita, who have extensive experience in Chinese law and practice.

The Shanghai office has been devoted to successfully expanding businesses conducted by Japanese companies in China, including establishing new companies, business alliances and M&A transactions with Chinese companies, and working on finding solutions to a wide range of legal issues that Japanese companies frequently confront in the process of conducting their business operations in China — related mainly to corporate law, compliance matters, restructuring, IP, labor disputes, and crisis management.

Through our extensive global network, we have been engaging in cross-border transactions in various countries (and jurisdictions) across the globe for many years, including Japan, China and other Asian regions, in addition to the U.S., and Europe. The cooperation of Japanese and Chinese lawyers in the China Practice Team in Shanghai, Beijing, and Tokyo, along with the seamless collaboration with our other Japanese and overseas offices, and close ties with China’s leading law firms, enable us to provide comprehensive, first-class legal services in China.

As the largest law firm in Japan, we have accumulated a growing list of high profile clients and notable achievements in a wide variety of practice areas involving Japanese law. By collaborating with our Japan offices (Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, and Fukuoka), the Shanghai office is qualified and equipped to provide a full range of legal services regarding Japanese law for Chinese companies that plan to invest and develop their businesses in Japan, and any cross-border transaction involving Japanese companies.

China Practice Team

In recent years, with the focus of the global economy shifting to the east and with China at its center, we have seen the needs of clients in the region drastically increase. In view of this trend, in addition to our long-standing international practice, we are rapidly strengthening our presence in the Asia-Pacific region and in particular, China. Currently, the China Practice has over twenty Chinese lawyers, Japanese lawyers, and paralegals, proficient in Chinese, Japanese and English. With coverage in both mainland China and Hong Kong, the team cross-collaborates with other practices within the firm to provide a seamless and high quality service for Chinese and Japanese businesses.

Nishimura & Asahi was granted licenses by the Ministry of Justice of the People’s Republic of China to open the Beijing and Shanghai representative offices in April 2010 and February 2014 respectively. Currently, the Beijing office is staffed by two Japanese lawyers, and the Shanghai office is staffed by three Japanese lawyers. In addition, we have formed close ties with some of China’s leading law firms to provide a first-class service across a wide-range of practice areas.
