Babies born in Japan are not automatically given citizenship the way babies in America are. A baby born to two foreign nationals in Japan will need legal status to stay in Japan similar to any other foreign national. Therefore, the foreign parents of a baby in Japan should take the necessary steps to secure the baby’s legal status in Japan.
Sometimes an agreement involves cargo or products that, if lost, would create more liability than either party is willing to accept. In these situations, where the risk of loss is disproportionally larger than the contract price, the parties may agree to include an insurance clause to ensure that, if the cargo is lost or destroyed, neither party will have to pay for the damage.
In certain industries it is common for employment contracts to contain a clause that grants the rights to all inventions by the employee to the employer in exchange for compensation. In some cases, the employers will set the compensation beforehand, essentially providing a set bonus for any and all inventions by employees.
In assigning responsibility for accidents it is not always clear who the negligent party is. In many cases there will have been a string of incidents leading up to the accident in question and there may be multiple cases of careless behavior. Having an attorney help with litigation or negotiation related to an accident in Japan can help make it clear what each parties’ legal responsibilities are.
