Our commitment to Japan dates back to 1925 when one of our founding partners, Morris Hadley, travelled to Yokohama to prepare an indenture for the Toho Electric Power Company. This long-standing commitment to Japan was further affirmed in 1977 when we became the first US law firm to be permitted to establish an office in Tokyo under its own name.


Today, we continue to advise Japan's key financial institutions, trading and utility companies as well as foreign international companies doing business in Japan. The main transaction based practice areas of the Tokyo office are banking, finance and corporate, with a market leading position in outbound M&A, project finance and acquisition finance in the energy, mining and infrastructure sectors. The office also works closely with Milbank’s other offices to assist clients on US capital markets, corporate and financial restructuring, and intellectual property litigation and dispute resolution matters. The Tokyo office is the centre of our Japan Practice Group which includes partners and associates across our global network. For in-bound transactions, attorneys in the Tokyo office work closely with leading Japanese law firms with whom we have developed close relationships.


Attorneys resident in the Tokyo office are qualified to advise on US and English law matters and many are fluent in Japanese. The office also has Chinese language capability.
