It is natural for business people to feel the need for legal support when expanding overseas. In comparison with Europe and the U.S., however, Japan's legal industry has not been internationalized. While there are a number of international law firms in Japan, there are very few with branch offices overseas. Doing what we could to address this issue, in October of 2004, Nishizawa International Law Office opened an office in one of the most important countries for Japanese businesses, Thailand.
Taking advantage of our experience in Thailand, We happily announce that we start our legal services to local companies in Indonesia from August 2020 with a business alliance with an excellent local lawyers, which country has the largest population in Southeast Asia and is developing rapidly.
Since then, we have been providing support to meet the specific needs of clients who are moving its business into overseas from Japan; from small size businesses to publicly listed companies. Regardless of whether trade agreements, such as TPP or FTA, go into effect, it is predicted that the overseas expansion of Japanese businesses will continue to increase. Therefore, we shall take one step at a time to provide legal services in every country throughout Asia while maintaining the law-abiding ethos for which Japanese lawyers are renowned. Also, we hope that this expansion will provide exciting career opportunities for young legal professionals.
