International legal advice in Tokyo

Tokyo is the largest metropolitan economy in the world and ranks top class in the world in number of Fortune Global 500 company headquarters.

In Japan we provide legal services through Withers Bengoshi Houjin and Withers Gaikokuhou Jimu Bengoshi Houjin. They are separate but affiliated entities to Withers and assist the firm’s clients with Japanese and cross-border legal matters. We have expert teams of lawyers offering advice on investment funds, real estate and tax, with more than 20 years of experience working in Asia, assisting the firm’s clients with structuring Japanese and cross-border investment in the Asia-Pacific region.

Each of our practice is recognised in many legal directories like Chambers Asia-Pacific, Legal 500, IFLR1000, Who’s Who, to name a few, and a the majority of our partners also received top rankings in Chambers Asia-Pacific 2021. Our achievements were recognised in ALB Japan Law Awards 2020, where we won Tax and Trusts Law Firm of the Year.

Working with both domestic and international clients, the teams work in close collaboration with colleagues across Withers’ global office network to provide integrated, real-time advice to meet the complex and diverse needs of our clients.

Tokyo is also one of the cities with the largest number of US$ millionaire residents, and our lawyers are equipped with the expertise to provide private client work with Withers being the go to firm for a number of private banks.
