Leveraging more than 30 years of experience handling U.S. legal matters for major Japanese corporations, Foley established its Tokyo office to expand our ability to provide representation in intellectual property and corporate legal issues. Our Tokyo office serves a dual purpose: It is a liaison for the firm’s growing list of Japanese clients, and it allows our U.S. clients to more actively conduct business in Japan.
Professionals in our Tokyo office capitalize on the firm’s recognized areas of strength, increasing our ability to assist and represent our global clients in complex international business transactions involving IP and technology issues, corporate legal matters, mergers and acquisitions, 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 our clients’ 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. They are bilingual in Japanese and English, enabling them to coordinate with our U.S. and international offices closely.
