Legal Services

Foreign lawyers in Japan play a crucial role in the integration of both economies by interfacing between European and Japanese firms on cross-border investment, in advising financial institutions investing or lending abroad, and in assisting Japanese companies wishing to access the European capital markets.

The committee aims to overcome restrictions on lawyers in exercising their profession, as legal qualifications are currently not recognised across jurisdictions and/or their activities are circumscribed by local rules.
