Nature of practice and clients
City-Yuwa Partners was formed on the 1 February 2003 upon the merger of Yuwa Partners and the Law Department of Tokyo City Law & Tax Partners, resulting in one of Japan's leading law firms. Since then City-Yuwa has grown into one of Japan's preeminent law firms capable of providing a full range of diversified legal services.
City-Yuwa has many lawyers with experience working in various fields including as former prosecutors, high-ranking governmental officials, in-house counsels for financial institutions, trading companies and other business corporations. Many of the lawyers at City-Yuwa are qualified as other professionals, including patent lawyers and certified public accountants, with many lawyers licensed in both Japan and foreign jurisdictions.
City-Yuwa Partners routinely counsels its clients in areas ranging from general corporate matters, international transactions, and financial transactions, including asset securitization and the formation and ongoing operations of investment funds, to mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property, civil and commercial litigation, and bankruptcy. City-Yuwa's attorneys are knowledgeable in a wide range of legal areas, with particular expertise in corporate law, international banking and finance, securities, mergers and acquisitions, investments, real estate, intellectual property, litigation and alternative dispute resolution, bankruptcy and virtually all aspects of international and domestic business transactions. City-Yuwa's attorneys and support staff are fluent in English, thereby enabling the firm to counsel its foreign clients and generate documentation for complex transactions in both Japanese and English.
