Our focus group Japan includes partners, counsel and associates from all of our practice teams and working groups. We regularly visit Japanese clients and maintain close relationships with Japan's leading law firms. Based on our long tradition of representing Japanese clients, both in transactional and dispute matters, our partners and associates have developed a deep understanding of the particulars of the Japanese industry, the nuances of Japanese culture and the differences in the approach of doing business in Japan and Europe.
