Japanese law firm joins MSI Global Alliance
Based in Tokyo, Aquaxis Law Office (Aquaxis) has been appointed as MSI’s exclusive representative law member in Japan. The firm, which specialises in commercial transactions, corporate M&A, regulatory compliance, dispute resolution, employment, intellectual property, and finance, provides comprehensive legal solutions and expert counsel to both domestic and international clients.
The team at Aquaxis shares a unified focus on leveraging their collective knowledge to address and resolve their clients' challenges and provide them with practical solutions that apply to their business.
Grant Tanabe, Foreign Legal Counsel at Aquaxis, comments, “Our firm has a unique makeup when compared to other law firms in Japan. Nearly all our attorneys have in-house legal backgrounds or have been seconded to the legal departments of large global companies. We’ve been in the shoes of legal counsel, so we know the advice that they want. We also have extensive experience in working for global law firms, and truly practice diversity in Japan as half of our lawyers, including our managing partner, are women.”
Andrew Leck, MSI’s CEO, comments, “I am pleased to welcome Aquaxis Law Office as our new member in Japan. Having worked with a number of their senior partners in the past at our previous member firm, I know the team will provide high-quality services in the region and across the globe."
