Venture Capital/Start-ups

Comprehensive legal services for start-ups through all stages of development

Start-up Ventures in Japan

The market for start-up companies has continued to develop in Japan, with a more entrepreneur-friendly legal and regulatory environment emerging over the last decade. As a result, a large number of start-ups have been established and listed on stock exchanges, contributing to growth in the Japanese economy.

Comprehensive Legal Services

We offer the entire range of legal services typically required by start-ups, such as providing initial support at the capitalization stage, helping a company structure its expanding business, and capital markets support at listing. Through these stages of growth, we often assist clients with industry-specific regulations, compliance requirements, and intellectual property issues.
