Hashidate Law Office was established in 1980, and since its founding, Hashidate Law Office has earned an outstanding reputation as a law firm that provides high quality legal services to leading Japanese companies, banks, and securities firms, particularly in the area of cross-border financial transactions.

Currently, Hashidate Law Office provides the world’s leading companies with a full range of legal services, from providing legal advice in the preparation and negotiation of agreements so as to prevent possible future disputes, to assisting in commercial dispute resolution, including legal proceedings such as litigation and mediation. In providing these and other services, our lawyers can rely on their expertise in a wide variety of areas, as well as the ability to call upon a global network of top-tier law firms for assistance. Hashidate Law Office has in recent years been focused on litigation (both in Japan and overseas), with an increased number of cases accompanying recent societal changes, and has, in various fields, steadily achieved excellent results for our clients. Hashidate Law Office’s overall practice is currently evenly divided between domestic and international legal matters.

Hashidate Law Office has developed a global legal network, with alliances with the UK law firm of Addleshaw Goddard LLP and several Chinese law firms (Grandall Law Firm and A&Z Law Firm), not to mention relationships with a number of prominent foreign law firms in the major cities of the world, such that we could provide our clients with rapid and effective legal coverage in most countries and areas throughout the globe.

In recent decades, the legal environment has changed at an unexpectedly rapid pace due to societal changes and major judicial reforms. We have flexibly dealt with these changes, and, whatever changes are in store for the future, we will continue to strive to provide our clients with an even higher level quality of legal services, without losing the sight of the fact that our responsibility as legal professionals should be to contribute toward fairness and justice in our society through a tireless focus on serving our clients.
