The Firm wishes to expand its international partnership by hiring non-Japanese attorneys. Preference will be given to those who are licensed in a common law jurisdiction with native English language drafting skills. The Firm is particularly eager to hire attorneys with experience in the fields of finance, securitization, investment fund formation, private equity and mergers and acquisitions. Japanese language ability is not required but is desirable. The Firm is able to offer clients legal advice on the laws of the US states of New York and California, the Federal laws of the United States, the laws of Germany and the People’s Republic of China, India, the states of Queensland and Victoria, Australia and Australian Federal laws, as well as Japanese law, taking full advantage of the extensive experience of our foreign partners and of counsels. We are working towards building a sophisticated international team of lawyers to better serve our Japanese and non-Japanese clients. Because our Firm has registered as a Foreign Law Joint Practice (gaikoku hou kyoudou jigyou), we are able to offer a long-term career to non Japanese attorneys, with the possibility of partnership. Candidates who have completed three years of practice in their home jurisdictions will be eligible for partner track opportunities.

Atsumi & Sakai is located in Uchisaiwai-cho, Tokyo, overlooking the beautiful Hibiya Park in the heart of Tokyo’s central business district. The Firm’s office is just a short walk from the Tokyo District Court, the Supreme Court, the offices of the Tokyo Bar Association and many government agencies, including the Financial Services Agency, the Ministry of Finance and METI.
