Law Firm Overview
Since its founding in 1966, Nishimura & Partners has grown to be one of Japan's largest law firms and one of a very few Japanese full-service firms. With focuses on all aspects of domestic and international corporate activity, we advise not only top-tier Japanese and foreign companies and financial institutions, but also Japanese administrative agencies, foreign governmental entities, international organizations, and increasingly, new economy enterprises.
Nishimura & Partners continues to act on the belief of our founders: that the legal profession must adopt structures that respond to evolving business and social needs. Nishimura & Partners is committed to further expansion to respond to our clients. We are unique among Japanese firms in having systematically consolidated our professional resources. We have more than 195 Japanese and foreign lawyers and employ close to 200 support staff, including certified public accountants and tax accountants, as well as one of the largest paralegal teams in Japan.
Our January 2004 merger with bankruptcy boutique Tokiwa Sogo Law Office and the October 2004 arrival of Hiroshi Maeda and his project finance team have further strengthened the firm's comprehensive expertise and resources, particularly in the growing areas of corporate revitalization and Project Finance Initiative (PFI).
Nishimura & Partners' commitment to professionalism and client service has allowed it to become one of Japan's premier law firms. Among the nation's largest firms, it is, we believe, unparalleled in this country in breadth and depth of clientele and practice.
