Japan - Our work

A well-established presence in Japan.

As one of the first foreign law offices to open in Tokyo, we have over 30 years’ experience in providing legal services from Japan.

Our international and Japanese teams are fully integrated and work together on various works on a daily basis advising international and Japanese clients.

We have extensive experience advising clients across a broad range of industries, including automotive, chemicals, consumer goods, energy and natural resources, financial institutions, healthcare, infrastructure and TMT (technology, media and telecoms).

We cover the following practice areas:

  • Corporate / M&A;
  • Antitrust and competition;
  • Disputes, litigation and arbitration;
  • Global investigations; and
  • Infrastructure / real estate. 

Our work is complex at Freshfields, and while it can be difficult, it’s enriching. We work with high-profile organisations on mandates that can set new precedents, so you’ll make an impact and leave your mark, empowering you and those around you. You’ll get the recognition you deserve and, whether you’re a lawyer or working alongside them in our Business Services teams, you’ll have opportunities to develop, giving you the confidence to grow both professionally and personally.
