Leading Japanese law firm Nishimura & Asahi has advised on the establishment of the Japan Network for Public Interest Activities (“JANPIA”), and its application for Designated Utilization Organization (“DUO”) status, based on Japan’s new law to promote the use of funds from dormant bank accounts for socially beneficial purposes.

On January 11, 2019 JANPIA received DUO designation, and Nishimura & Asahi became the legal advisor of JANPIA.

The Nishimura & Asahi team was led by Yo Ota, Norimitsu Yamamoto, Keita Yasuda, Toru Konishi, Yukihiro Sugiura and Kei Igawa.
