We represent the Tokyo offices of most major international UK, US and offshore law firms in Tokyo.

Internationally trained and qualified candidates with Japanese language skills are always in high demand and there is an increased demand for top quality lawyers with arbitration, corporate M&A, corporate energy and project finance experience, even without language skills.

International firms generally look for candidates with some kind of connection to Japan but are increasingly open to hiring international lawyers with no connection to the country if they have the right experience for their practice.

The market in Japan is increasingly buoyant as the 2020 Olympics approach, making it an excellent location for international lawyers to establish themselves in the next few years.
