Leveraging more than 30 years of experience handling U.S. legal matters for major Japanese corporations, Foley established its Tokyo office to further expand our ability to provide representation in intellectual property and corporate legal matters. Our Tokyo office now serves a dual purpose: It is a liaison for the firm’s growing list of Japanese clients and also allows our U.S. clients to more actively conduct business in Japan.

Our Tokyo office capitalizes on the firm's recognized areas of strength, increasing our ability to assist and represent our Asian, U.S., and global clients in complex international business transactions involving IP and technology issues, corporate legal matters (including M&A), litigation, and regulatory work.

Conducting business in the global marketplace requires comprehension of a broad range of issues, including unique cultural and political issues. To help ensure your success, Foley has assembled a team of professionals who have lived or worked in Asia and are thoroughly familiar with the cultural traditions, etiquette, and business protocols of countries along the Pacific Rim. Our Tokyo office personnel includes Japanese bengoshi attorneys also licensed in the United States, who are bilingual in Japanese and English, enabling them to closely coordinate with our U.S. and worldwide offices.
