Yuji Okubo (Partner)


I started my career as a bengoshi at an international law firm, Clifford Chance, in January 2010, and since then, I have been involved in numerous domestic and international corporate transactions representing both Japanese and international clients. During my career, I have come to realize that there are several practice areas, including international transactions, which require the deeper involvement and support of Japanese lawyers. I would like to make a valuable contribution to these areas in the city of Nagoya and continue exerting my best efforts to always remain close to clients and provide optimal solutions for you.
