With the fourth largest global economy and the EU’s second-largest Asian trading partner, Japan’s tech-rich culture is a natural fit for our world-leading tech firm.

That’s why we’ll be opening an office there later this year, building on our strong relationships with Japanese law firms and organisations such as JCCI (The Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry), JPAA (Japan Patent Attorneys Association), JIPA (Japan Intellectual Property Association) and JETRO (Japan External Trade Organisation), an independent Japanese government agency organised by the Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry.

We’ll continue supporting you across the country’s key sectors in technology, automotive, life sciences, clean energy, and retail and consumer. We can help you on cross-border transactional, IP, dispute resolution and data protection work in the tech space from Japan to Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific. We’ll also continue collaborating across our strong network of renowned local firms to support you with your in-bound transactions.

Our Japanese lawyers are supported by our Japan Group, based across our global network, who have a rich insight in Japanese business practices. 

To find out more on how we can assist your business in Japan, get in touch with us at Japan Group.
