For more than 25 years, lawyers in our Tokyo office have handled many of Japan’s cutting-edge local and cross-border transactions and litigations.


With Japanese and U.S. 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.

In addition, our Global Japan Practice team consisting of over 80 lawyers from our offices worldwide, counsel Japanese clients operating globally on a daily basis. Integrating the resources and capabilities of a multidisciplinary team located in every major market around the world, we are able to efficiently serve clients doing business in Japan and provide a consistently high level of service to our clients both locally and internationally.
