The BCCJ is delighted to welcome Mayer Brown GJBJ as a corporate member!

Mayer Brown has long served an impressive roster of Japan-based multinational corporations and financial institutions, including their international affiliates. The March 2018 opening of Mayer Brown’s Tokyo office advances our firm-wide goal of fully supporting our Japanese clients in the countries and regions where they do business. As with all of Mayer Brown’s offices, our Tokyo office is fully integrated with our global platform, ensuring our ability to provide world-class client service and providing a new route for clients to draw on our capabilities.

The Tokyo office, by design, has a collegial atmosphere and an entrepreneurial spirit. Our Tokyo office serves our global Japan practice and we regularly represent Japanese companies and financial institutions on a range of transactional, regulatory and contentious matters.

Our Tokyo team comprises dedicated international practitioners, including native Japanese and other Japanese-speaking lawyers who have extensive experience working in Japan and advising Japanese clients.

Mayer Brown is a distinctively global law firm, uniquely positioned to advise the world’s leading companies and financial institutions on their most complex deals and disputes. With extensive reach across four continents, we are the only integrated law firm in the world with approximately 200 lawyers in each of the world’s three largest financial centers—New York, London and Hong Kong. Our diverse teams of lawyers are recognized by our clients as strategic partners with deep commercial instincts and a commitment to creatively anticipating their needs and delivering excellence in everything we do. Our “one-firm” culture—seamless and integrated across all practices and regions—ensures that our clients receive the best of our knowledge and experience.

Since its founding in 1881, Mayer Brown’s geographical footprint has grown to meet the needs and demands of our global clients. We have 26 global offices in key business centers in the Americas, Asia, Europe and Middle East, and our practices comprise more than 1,600 lawyers including over 250 Chambers-ranked lawyers worldwide.  In Brazil, Tauil & Chequer Advogados in association with Mayer Brown offers clients access to a full-service Brazilian domestic law practice. Tauil & Chequer has offices in Brasília, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.

Our cross-practice, cross-border approach to delivering sophisticated legal services to clients means our lawyers possess a thorough knowledge of the legal systems in which they are based, a broad mix of professional and cultural backgrounds, and a familiarity with the laws and political, cultural and commercial influences likely to impact matters in other regions. In fact, many are recognized for their work in multiple jurisdictions. This international outlook and broad range of practical experience provides our clients with a depth of insight and versatility.
