Nagashima Ohno & Tsunematsu Singapore LLP
(Representative: Nobuo Fukui)
Over the past few years, Nagashima Ohno & Tsunematsu (“NO&T”) has been strengthening its capacity and organizational structure to efficiently support Japanese companies that are expanding operations in China, India and other Southeast Asian countries. In order to meet the rapidly developing needs of these companies, the NO&T Tokyo office has organized a group designated as the “Asia Practice Group“, which focuses on providing legal support to Japanese companies in their activities in Asia; strengthening the firm’s alliances and relationships with prominent law firms in the region; and seconding the firm’s lawyers to, and making the firm’s services available in, major cities within Asia. With the aim of enhancing NO&T’s presence in the region to support clients even more efficiently, the firm has moved forward with its plan to establish a local office in Singapore, a city which is centrally located and continues to develop as an essential business hub for the Asia-Pacific region.
The Singapore office (Nagashima Ohno & Tsunematsu Singapore LLP) provides prompt legal services based on the latest local information to meet wide-ranging client needs, by closely coordinating with our lawyers based in major cities in Asia and with the Asia Practice Group in our Tokyo office, and also by benefitting from business bases in Asia secured through co-operative alliances and collaborative relationships with prominent law firms in the regions.
Not only does the Singapore office offer legal services within Singapore, but it also plays a coordinating role within the firm’s network in the neighboring Asian countries where our lawyers are based. The wide array of practice areas in the Singapore office includes contractual matters, cross-border M&A, establishment of subsidiaries and joint ventures, real estate projects, energy infrastructure projects, dispute resolution including international arbitration, finance, employment, and so forth.
The Singapore office is staffed by the following lawyers.
