Pro Bono Projects

The firm actively participates in pro bono projects, including legal education projects and refugee assistance activities, mainly through team-based endeavors undertaken by our younger lawyers.

Examples of these projects include:

■ In collaboration with one of our clients, a large global investment bank, a team of the firm’s younger lawyers gave a well-received legal lecture to junior-high-school and high-school students at a children’s home.

■ In collaboration with the Japan Association for Refugees, a team of the firm’s younger lawyers filed an application for refugee status on behalf of an applicant who has suffered persecution in Africa.

■ Some of the firm’s lawyers who are native speakers of English participated in a well-received English study camp for children of families with financial difficulties.

Further, lawyers of the firm participate in various activities that encourage respect for diversity among individuals. As an example, one of our lawyers is a director of Lawyers for LGBT and Allies Network (LLAN).
