You shouldn’t have to settle your loved one’s estate without help

These days many people take advantage of the globalized nature of our financial system to seek the best return on their investment around the world, regardless of borders or language. When a loved one passes away who had property in Japan, stocks in America and bank accounts in Europe, sorting through and distributing the financial assets can be challenging.

Our office has experience in the collection and distribution of property in Japan and around the world. We work closely with financial institutions and tax professionals to ensure that the deceased’s wishes are upheld to their fullest. If you have a loved one who owned property or had assets in Japan, please contact our office to find out how we can help you settle their estate.

Let us help you navigate Japanese criminal justice system

Being charged with a crime in Japan as a foreign national is always difficult, not only because of the language barrier but also the cultural differences built into the Japanese criminal justice system. Our legal team has not only the extensive legal experience to present the best defense possible, but also the ability to translate across languages and cultures to help you have a firm grasp of the proceedings. Time is of the essence in criminal defense cases so if the police have detained you or someone you know, please contact our office to set up an appointment as soon as possible.

Know your rights under Japanese labor law

Japanese labor law is very protective of workers and if you feel that your rights are being abused by your employer it is important to discuss the issue with a lawyer to understand your legal options. Whether it’s a lack of overtime pay, an improper dismissal or sexual harassment, we take great care in researching and building a strong case that will lead to the best possible result for our clients.

Don’t let new Japanese laws take your company by surprise

Our wide and varied practice requires our legal team to be on top of all the latest legal trends and decisions. We also keep a close eye on upcoming bills in the Diet to be able to advise our clients on how any new legislation will impact them. We are happy to consult with you about any recent legislation and provide you with a legal opinion of how it will affect your business or interests in Japan.

If you have a legal claim that you would like to pursue or would like a consultation on a legal matter, please don’t hesitate to contact our office.
