Cross-border tax advice in Japan
Japan is the third largest global economy by GDP and is home to many of the world's leading manufacturers and technology businesses.
Withers opened its Tokyo office in 2015 and under Withers Japan Zeirishi Jimusho, the office has historically focused on Japanese and cross-border tax advice for international clients in Japan.
In Oct 2018, under the affiliated names of Withers Gaikokuhou Jimo Bengoshi Houjin and Withers Bengoshi Houjin, the Tokyo office expanded its investment management and real estate offering where our lawyers, who are leading individuals in their specialist areas, are equipped with the expertise to advise Japan’s most prominent companies and international corporations on inbound and outbound cross-jurisdictional transactions.
Withers Japan is a Foreign law joint enterprise (gaikokuhou kyoudou jigyou) between Withers Gaikokuhou Jimu Bengoshi Houjin and Withers Bengoshi Houjin. Withers Japan Zeirishi Jimusho is a separate but affiliated entity to Withers.
