Responding to the increasing demand for an overall legal service in the Kansai area, TMI Associates opened its Kobe Office in September 2014, as its new hub in the Kansai area.

In addition to being a hub of a wide variety of industries, which local companies and global companies have continuously built up, in recent years, Kobe, one of Japan’s most internationalized cities, has promoted itself as Japan’s largest biomedical cluster under the banner of “Kobe – the Medical Industry City”, and many medical-related companies and organizations have been expanding there, as a result. In our Kobe Office, we provide highly technical legal opinions as well as high value-added local legal services, working together closely and carefully, making use of our abundant achievements and resources in the field of intellectual property, including science and technology as well as IT, which we have accumulated through the cooperative work of our Attorneys and Patent Attorneys, as one of our major fields of practice ever since the establishment of our firm.

Furthermore, to respond to our internationally diverse clients, our resident Attorneys dealing with cross-border cases, not to mention domestic cases, will always be ready to serve you in the Office. In collaboration with our overseas offices and joint venture partners overseas, we will respond to a wide range of needs, such as domestic and international corporate M&A, international transactions, overseas expansion, dispute resolution, legal compliance, the Antimonopoly Act, etc.
