I am a Consultant Partner and act for many companies, governmental organisations and high net-worth individuals in the Japanese community in the UK, Europe and Japan.

I graduated from Chuo University, Tokyo in 1978 with a degree in Law, and further graduated from The Legal Training Institute of the Supreme Court of Japan in 1981, as a Japanese Qualified Lawyer. In 1981, I joined Baker & McKenzie in their Tokyo office during which time I took a break to follow a Master’s degree course in Law at Queens' College, Cambridge University, graduating in 1988; and registered at the Law Society of England & Wales in 2006.

After graduating, I returned to work with Baker & Mckenzie before joining Clifford Chance LLP in 1990, where my contribution was instrumental to the development of their Japan Business Group.

I act for many companies, governmental organisations and high net-worth individuals in the Japanese community in the UK, Europe and Japan. I am also General Legal Counsel for JETRO London and the board of trustee of Rikkyo School in England.

I regularly host seminars aimed at a Japanese audience and am author of a number of articles including:

  • Practical Aspects of Japanese Companies' Legal issues & problems in Europe (IBL Journal Vol.24, No.12);
  • Sex and Race Discrimination in Employment & Japanese Companies (Jetro Sensor);
  • The World of IT and Risk Management (IBL Journal Vol.29 No.6);
