Notice of Opening of Beijing Representative Office

Press releases

June 2, 2010

We are pleased to announce that Nishimura and Asahi ("N&A"), Japan's largest law firm, has opened its Beijing Representative Office, which has been in full operation since this June.

Since the merger of two major Japanese law firms in July 2007, which together became Nishimura & Asahi ("N&A"), the firm has sought to further enhance its overseas practice, and has expanded its networks in Asia; a region which is expected to play a major role in the future economic growth of the global economy. As a part of this process, N&A formed a business alliance with Soga Uryu & Itoga for their respective China practices in December 2009. In addition, N&A was recently granted a license from the Ministry of Justice, P.R.C., and has opened its Beijing Representative Office in April, which has been in full operation since this June.

The office will be staffed by two of N&A's Japanese lawyers, Saori Okada and Fumiaki Kai. The office will also be supported by N&A's Tokyo office, which has Japanese and Chinese lawyers who are fluent in both languages. Please refer to the contact information below if you require any legal services relating to China.
