We work primarily with American startups and technology companies doing business with Japanese partners, offering our clients on-the-ground bilingual negotiation and business development support in Japan. We also conduct lectures and seminars in Japan on international business negotiations and similar topics.
Since our founding in 2014, we have advised American and Japanese companies on a variety of complex international business transactions and Japan-based business development initiatives.

Fluent in Japanese, Reid is also a New York-qualified attorney and a registered foreign lawyer in Japan.
Business Development Support
Foreign companies often struggle in their business development initiatives with Japanese companies. We provide insight into Japanese business practices, bilingual communication skills, and dedicated service to help our clients succeed with their Japanese business partners.
International Negotiation Support
Negotiations with large Japanese companies can be complex and extremely challenging for foreign businesses. With years of experience advising both Japanese and American businesses in negotiations for cross-border deals, we assist our clients in negotiating effectively with Japanese counterparties and reaching a positive outcome.
Lectures and Seminars
We have conducted dozens of lectures and seminars for Japanese companies and Japanese law firms on topics such as international M&A transactions, international business negotiations, and startup and venture capital market practice in the United States.
To provide these services, we leverage deep experience in a wide range of Japan-related international business projects, and we offer insight based on our firsthand experience advising Japanese as well as American companies on a multitude of international business transactions.
Our experience includes years of working with Japanese and American companies on international business initiatives. Representative projects include the following matters. Additional details are available upon request.
