Opening of New York Office

Mori Hamada & Matsumoto (“MHM”) is pleased to announce the opening of the New York office (Mori Hamada & Matsumoto NY LLP) on September 6, 2023.

Our New York office will be headed by Yuto Matsumura, a managing partner of MHM with a deep and broad global network of contacts.  Joining him will be Aruto Kagami and Nobuhiko Suzuki, partners with elite expertise, extensive experience, and proven results in cross-border mandates, as well as senior associate Fumiya Sunose and Ken Kawamoto.  Aruto Kagami also specializes in cross-border competition law matters, white collar investigations, crisis management, and disputes; Nobuhiko Suzuki’s practice sees him specialize in cross-border M&A and corporate matters.

After many years of advising on cross-border deals and multijurisdictional disputes involving Asia and the Americas, in close association with major law firms in the region, MHM has now chosen New York — the center of global commerce and an important bridge between these regions — as the firm’s first location outside Asia.  The United States and broader region continues to be an important market for our clients, and therefore an important market for MHM.  Through the New York office, MHM intends to further bolster our relationships with peer firms and clients, while also enhancing our ability to meet the diverse needs of cross-border legal services spanning these regions.

Our New York office’s permanent location will shortly be announced separately.
