Message from the Japanese Legal Service Leader

PwC Japan Legal was established on November 1, 2014 as a member law firm of the PwC global network.

These days, business activities easily cross borders and expand in all directions. As a result, not only the knowledge of Japanese laws, but also those of foreign laws are essential in daily business transactions. In addition, companies are often involved in highly complicated projects which require various professional services that extend beyond legal, to include tax, accounting, and consulting services.

In light of the above current business conditions, our legal team works closely with the member firms of the PwC global network which consists of many diverse professionals. Working as one team, we can provide you with high quality professional services quickly and efficiently based on the latest trends in the legal, tax and accounting fields.

We are well positioned to assist you as the PwC global network includes law firms in 225 cities in 90 countries. Taking advantage of this extensive network, we provide legal services in cooperation with the law firms in the relevant region such that we can provide assistance in virtually any location where your business is operating.

With respect to the tax, accounting and consulting aspects of your transaction, we will work with PwC Tax Japan, PricewaterhouseCoopers Aarata LLC, PricewaterhouseCoopers Kyoto, PwC Consulting LLC and PwC Advisory LLC for Japanese domestic matters, and with the overseas member firms in the respective fields for non-Japanese matters. Accessing this global network enables us to seamlessly provide integrated services that are valuable to you.

In order to provide high quality services which meet your needs, every member of our firm is dedicated to continuing to improve his/her individual skills and we intend to expand and strengthen our capabilities to meet your needs.

We invite you to learn more about how PwC Legal Japan and our global legal network can assist you.
