Opening of Yokohama Office

Mori Hamada & Matsumoto is pleased to announce the planned opening of an office in Yokohama, Japan.

The firm has been providing legal support for a wide range of matters through its offices in Tokyo and other locations in Japan, and has recently decided to open a new office in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, which is one of the largest economies in Japan, in order to provide services specifically tailored to the needs of clients in that region in a location that is close to where they do business.

The Yokohama Office will be staffed by Yuta Kawashima, who is a partner of the firm and has extensive experience in areas including corporate law-related services, litigation and dispute resolution, M&A, and startups, and other associates of the firm.

The Yokohama Office will endeavor to contribute to the economic development of Kanagawa Prefecture by providing cutting-edge legal support in a wide range of areas including corporate law-related services, litigation and dispute resolution, M&A, startups, business succession, crisis management, finance, restructuring, and cross-border transactions while working in close coordination with the firm’s lawyers not only within Japan (Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka, Takamatsu, and Sapporo), but also at our overseas offices (those in Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore, Bangkok, Yangon, HCMC, Hanoi, Jakarta, and New York) as well as with other overseas law firms, etc. we have alliances with.

The Yokohama Office is scheduled to open this summer, after the necessary procedures have been completed.  Further details about the office, including the date of opening and the location, will be announced at a later date.

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