Pro Bono

Our fundamental mission is to realize an affluent and fair society based on the rule of law. Pro bono plays a critical role in our pursuit of this mission. We view it as our obligation and privilege, as Japan’s leading law firm, to contribute our legal skills in a meaningful way to our wider community.

We provide legal services to organizations that engage in socially beneficial activities that otherwise could not afford such legal services.

Examples of our more recent pro bono matters include advising on an initiative to issue domestic partnership certificates for LGBT couples in Japan using blockchain technology; advising on an app to help parents deal with their children’s emergency health issues; and licensing advice for an organization seeking to restore Japan’s deteriorating kelp forests.
