Since setting up our office in 1998, we are the only Italian law firm in Japan whose local partner is admitted to practice locally pursuant to official authorizations by the Japanese Ministry of Justice and by the Japanese Federation of Bar Associations.

We are principally involved in assisting Japanese clients with interests in Italy and Italian clients with interests in Japan in their start-up operations (incorporating subsidiaries, registering branches, opening representative offices,  investing in joint ventures), M&A and, in general, in all kinds of business transactions between the two countries.

The office is staffed by trilingual legal and paralegal staff with valuable in-depth knowledge of the business dynamics between Italy and Japan.

The present local partner, Mr.  Adriano Villa, started his experience in Japan in 1986 and is, as of today, the only Italian lawyer admitted to practice as a foreign-law attorney (“Gaikokuho-jimubengoshi”).
