Pakistan is one of the fastest growing economies in the world, with a large population of approximately 210 million people, a low average age of about 23, and an abundance of highly-skilled English-speaking workers. Pakistan is also a pro-Japan country, and many Japanese products such as cars are highly valued throughout the country. As such, Pakistan is home to a myriad of business opportunities for Japanese companies.
We, Nishimura & Asahi, have been providing a wide variety of legal services (including in relation to M&A, JVs, project finance, ODA, crisis management, compliance, labor law, and dispute resolution) with our Pakistani law experts in our offices in Japan and Dubai, in association with Afridi & Angell, a prominent law firm to which we have been sending a secondee, as well as our relationships with local firms we have developed over the years.
Further, we are regularly providing information on Pakistani law to our existing and potential Japanese clients through our publications, newsletters, and seminars.
