Daiichi Law Office:

Since the foundation of Iechika & Takatori Godo Law Office back in 1964 (renamed Daiichi Law Office in 1966), we have steadily increased a number of our attorneys, and diversified the practice areas we cover, based upon the requests from our clients as well as prediction about the trends of our clients’ needs. Today, we have offices in Tokyo and Osaka with 30 lawyers and 20 support staff in total, and our practice has expanded to encompass almost all areas of the law, including cross-border transactions, take-over defense and patent litigation. We are proud of the efforts we have made in order to adjust instantly and flexibly to the rapid changes in society, and appreciate all the support from our clients, over the last nearly half-century.

The business environments surrounding Japan and the wider Asian region have changed drastically over the decades. When Daiichi Law Office was founded, we could not have imagined today’s rapid development of the Asian economies. Now, we are advising Chinese and Indian companies that are investing in Japan on Japanese financial and securities regulations. The business activities of our clients routinely involve crossing borders, and the dissemination of information technologies will accelerate as time goes on. We are intensely aware of the importance of keeping up with these and other changes, and are sincerely committed to ensuring provision of the highest quality of legal services for our clients.

As our name “Daiichi” suggests, we will strive to continue to be your “first choice” counsel.

We greatly appreciate your continued support.
