Among Japanese international law firms today, Anderson Mori & Tomotsune has one of the longest track records of serving the international business and legal community doing business in Japan, tracing our roots back to the 1950’s to the practices of James Anderson, a Wall Street trained lawyer and Arthur Mōri, a Yale Law School graduate who served in the US Army in Tokyo during the Occupation period.
Many of AM&T’s clients are international corporations with a strong presence in Japan through Japanese subsidiaries, branch offices, and joint ventures. Japanese attorneys at AM&T are fluent in English, and the majority of our partners and senior associates have gained admission as lawyers and/or practical work experience at law firms in such jurisdictions as the US, the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Australia, China, India, Korea, Malaysia and Indonesia. AM&T also has a team of native English speaking attorneys qualified in various jurisdictions around the world, ranging from the US to China, the UK to the Philippines, who work hand-in-hand with our Japanese attorneys and understand the challenges and concerns of our international clients operating in Japan. Our attorneys are supported by approximately 120 in-house translators who can quickly and efficiently translate Japanese legal documentation to English and other languages as necessary.
AM&T is also frequently engaged to coordinate complex projects spanning multiple legal jurisdictions worldwide. We have a long track record of working with the premier firms around the world, and through this international legal network, we efficiently and reliably provide our clients with access to the best lawyers in each jurisdiction. AM&T continuously develops and maintains the strength of this network through joint projects and mutual exchanges of lawyers. Our partners have also served at the highest levels of leadership in international legal organizations such as the International Bar Association and the Inter-Pacific Bar Association, thus further expanding the reach of AM&T's professional network to every corner of the world.
