While cross-border financial transactions involving multiple jurisdictions are conducted every day in the current global borderless economy, these transactions often give rise to a substantial number of complex legal issues, requiring expert legal support. We provide Japanese and foreign institutions with quality and timely services relating to international financial transactions involving multiple jurisdictions. We meet the needs of our clients by building a team of experienced attorneys qualified in Japan and in the relevant foreign jurisdictions. The attorneys qualified in Japan working in this field have foreign law degrees and overseas vocational experience. We also have a global network of first tier law firms in more than one hundred jurisdictions. This network enables us to collaborate with those overseas law firms to support clients in need of legal advice on various foreign jurisdictions in a timely and efficient manner.
