Nagashima Ohno & Tsunematsu is founded on the following two fundamental principles:
As set out above, the collaboration of all of the firm’s lawyers with the common goal of providing the firm’s clients with the highest quality legal services, and actually providing the highest quality legal services through such collaborative effort is valued as one of the most important principles of the firm. These principles are shared by all Nagashima Ohno & Tsunematsu lawyers and staff.
We have powerful legal teams of lawyers, paralegals and secretaries capable of providing our clients with effective practical solutions. Each team has hands-on experience in achieving real results for clients in almost every sector of business. Because so many of our clients are domestic or foreign multi-national corporations, our teams also have tremendous experience in the international arena.
Team units are organized flexibly based on the type and needs of each case. Having specialized knowledge and experience, our lawyers are able to provide legal services and advice in various fields. Thus, our clients do not need to seek advice from other firms when dealing with complex or multiple matters.
By providing legal services within our legal team system, our lawyers gain invaluable experience in cases spanning a wide range of practice areas, thereby adding to their knowledge and competency. Learning continues through participation by our lawyers in foreign legal studies programs, independent research and study arrangements and/or through placements with educational and governmental institutions. Further training is accomplished through internal office study sessions and by virtue of our specialty practice group system.
We train and develop paralegals of incomparable quality and competence. We place great importance on their specialist knowledge and offer them work that affords them substantial learning opportunities and responsibilities under the guidance of our lawyers. Secretaries are trained to continuously improve and maintain excellent communication skills to work swiftly, effectively and precisely. Administration staff members, including information technology staff, are the administrative "backbone" of the firm ensuring the delivery of high quality legal services and supporting various aspects of our business operations.
With offices in Tokyo, New York and Asian countries, we have developed smooth and close working relationships with top-tier foreign law firms in every major city in the world including cities in Europe, North and Latin America, and Asia based upon its many years of working together with law firms from around the world. Particularly, in supporting the overseas expansion of Japanese companies, we provide comprehensive legal services for any country or area by utilizing our local offices, the business bases secured through co-operative alliances and collaborative relationships with prominent local law firms.
