Justice is in Our Hearts—Toward
Our 100th Anniversary: A History of Trust and Endeavor

Nagawa-Okamura Law Firm was founded in 1917 and has been one of Japan’s leading law firms for 100 years. I am the firm’s fourth managing partner, succeeding Kanichi Nagawa, Yasuo Nagawa and Ryoichi Okamura. Through these four generations the firm has specialized in litigation
and court cases and has consistently provided highly advanced legal services. Our firm has handled numerous cases of historical importance,
including the Teijin Scandal, Showa Denko Incident, Shipbuilding Scandal and Haneda Airport Incident. And today, in the midst of the Internet driven information revolution,
when securing and utilizing intellectual property has become an important aspect of companies’
international strategy, we have established a system for the integrated management of intellectual property such as patents,
trademarks and copyrights on an international basis, from filing to infringement prevention,
through an alliance formed in 2006 with international patent firm Kohno & Co. We also continue to enhance our international sensibility and acumen by sending attorneys overseas
for training every year and participating in the annual meetings of the International Trademark Association (INTA)
and International Bar Association (IBA). In addition, our firm not only engages in traditional litigation but also works toward the speedy
and just resolution of issues and cases in the areas of labor management,
corporate law and civil affairs, drawing on the latest legal theories and practices. We will continue to innovate our practice in order to further our standing as a law firm
that consistently meets the expectations of our clients. Our door is always open. Please feel free to enter.
