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’s Tokyo Office is a leading capital markets law firm, and our Tokyo attorneys regularly advise issuers, agents, and underwriters in a broad range of domestic and international private and public financings. We are most active in representing issuers and underwriters in debt and equity offerings, having been involved in Tokyo-based offerings that have raised over $30 billion since 2002. Our capital markets experience spans the continuum, and includes private placements, IPOs, equity offerings, debt offerings, Rule 144A offerings, global offerings, innovative financial products, derivatives, and structured products.
