Firm Profile


Morrison & Foerster was one of the first international law firms to be licensed in Japan, when we opened our Tokyo office in 1987. Today, the firm is the largest and most diversified international law firm in Japan, and includes the Japan admitted lawyers of the Registered Associated Offices of Ito & Mitomi, who work side-by-side with Morrison & Foerster attorneys.

Our Tokyo-based attorneys are highly experienced in key industry sectors, including computer products and peripherals, semiconductors, software, life sciences, information technology, telecommunications, and financial services.


Morrison & Foerster has one of Japan’s leading real estate practices, in which we work closely with Ito & Mitomi lawyers to provide seamless service for a wide variety of transactions. Our Tokyo Real Estate group draws on the strength of the office, representing many of the most substantial and active real estate companies in Japan and Asia on a wide range of transactions. The real estate group represents clients in all stages of the real estate investment cycle, from fund formation, to project acquisition and financing, to project and portfolio sales, to public offering of real estate vehicles. We are consistently recognized as a Tier 1 firm by Chambers Asia and Asia Pacific Legal 500 for our real estate practice.
