Industry Coverage Human Resources, Education and Welfare

With the acceleration of technological innovation, and aging population combined with falling birth rate, in the communication and IT fields, the qualities and needs of business fields that support the utilization of human resources, education and welfare have become diverse.  Each of these fields demand practical legal advice in accordance with the changes occurring in the existing regulatory frameworks, taking into account the changes in deregulation in the future. 

At TMI, we have been providing advice to businesses supporting the development and mobilization of human resources such as corporations and human resource consulting firms engaged in worker dispatch and employment agency services, in accordance with the various changes in the employment practice and circumstances surrounding the related regulations.  Also, in response to the recent changes in the economic environment, we offer a wide range of advice not only on existing laws and regulations but also advice which takes into account deregulation trends related to personnel, labor and visas.

Also, we provide advice on the establishment of compliance systems and the management of intellectual property rights to universities and institutions as well as advice on daily legal practices and overseas development of educational business to private businesses related to education such as cram schools and educational publishers.

Furthermore, we provide advice to medical institutions and nursing homes on the establishment of new business models that advance with IT progress, in accordance with the Medical Practitioners' Act, Pharmaceutical Affairs Act and the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare guidelines.  We are prepared to offer you proper advice in accordance with the latest regulatory trends via teams of attorneys including those qualified as doctors with experience in the medical fields.  

Amidst the changes in industrial and social structures, our firm can offer you  leading-edge legal advice based on prompt and accurate information we have gathered in any and all fields related to human resources, education and welfare, fields which we assume will face significant deregulation in the future.
