Opening of Osaka Office

Mori Hamada & Matsumoto (Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo) is pleased to announce its decision to open an office in Osaka, Japan.

Osaka is one of Japan’s largest cities and the busy and vibrant commercial hub of the country’s western region. By opening an office in Osaka, the firm aims to provide services specifically tailored to its existing clients located in western Japan and to address their needs from within the region.

The Osaka Office will assist clients with the full range of services provided by the firm generally, in fields including mergers & acquisitions, corporate practice, finance, intellectual property, litigation and other forms of dispute resolution, as well as assistance that addresses other legal needs of our clients. For multi-jurisdictional matters, including cross-border mergers & acquisitions and business expansion into Asian markets, the office will provide clients with cutting-edge legal support and services in close coordination with the firm’s lawyers in Tokyo and other offices and support desks located within and outside Japan, including those in Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore and Bangkok, as well as the Yangon Office that is due to open in 2014, and in close liaison with other major international law firms.

The Osaka Office will initially be staffed by three of the firm’s lawyers - Takuya Eguchi, Hirokazu Hayashi, and Takamasa Sato - who have extensive experience in domestic and international corporate matters, including matters involving China, Asia, US and Europe.

The Osaka Office is scheduled to open on Tuesday, April 1, 2014. Further details about the office will be announced at a later date.

The Osaka Office will be established as a branch office of Mori Hamada & Matsumoto LPC.
