Located in the centre of one of the world’s foremost finance centres, our Tokyo office opened in January 2005 to link our Chinese clients to this important hub of Asia investment banking, insurance, technology and manufacturing. This office also provides a contact point for our Japanese based clients for their investment and intellectual property interests in mainland China.
King & Wood Mallesons' Tokyo office was the first office in Japan opened by a leading Chinese law firm. The office is registered as King & Wood Mallesons Foreign Law Office.
Currently, the Tokyo office has three PRC lawyers and a number of other professional staff. They have extensive experience in the areas of finance, mergers and acquisitions, foreign investment, intellectual property and international arbitration.
The Tokyo office is backed up by the firm's head office in Beijing as well as our other offices in major Chinese cities aiming to provide the comprehensive and consistent high-quality services to clients in Japan and China.
We act for Japanese banks, corporations and funds on investments and trade-related issues with China. We also assist Chinese clients making investments into Japan including SOEs, private companies and financial investors.
