With Japanese, U.S. and U.K. law capabilities, the Tokyo team of lawyers provides clients with comprehensive legal services in each of these languages and jurisdictions. As a result, Orrick is a preferred advisor to local and international companies with inbound and outbound business activities that require sophisticated cross-border legal solutions.

On a daily basis, lawyers in the Tokyo office seamlessly cooperate with our other global offices to provide the best and most responsive legal solutions and services for our clients. Our Japan-qualified bengoshi, educated and with practice experience in Japan and abroad, work closely with our Japanese-speaking U.S.-qualified lawyers to provide legal services with an invaluable cross-cultural perspective.
