Characteristics of Our Office
One of the features of our office is a good balance between experienced and young fresh lawyers. As we all know, an accumulation of experiences is very important for our profession. At the same time, footwork and freshness that make us possible to provide flexible and thorough service are also strong advantages for practice lawyers.
We basically take a team approach for every cases, so you have at least two lawyers working together on your case. The team of experienced and fresh lawyer will do our best to lead a creative, prompt and appropriate resolution.
The other feature of our office is capabilities for international issues. In this increasingly globalized world, ability to handle international matters including; cross border business issue and conflicts, immigration, labor problems with foreign employees and family law matter like international divorce without language barrier is critical for lawyers today.
On April 2017, we launched Mihama branch in Chatan. We believe that by having the branch there, we can further strengthen our ability to resolve international cases and improve access to everyone in the middle and the northern part of the mainland Okinawa.
Mihama branch, in constant cooperation with other three lawyers and seven paralegals at the Naha office, provides wide-ranging legal services to our clients. We would be pleased if many of you use our new branch for your convenience.
