JLX PARTNERS 法律事務所・外国法共同事業

JLX Partners is a team of seasoned Japanese and US lawyers with large firm backgrounds working together in an independent firm.  We aim to offer a better alternative to the law firm options typically available in Japan. 
JLX’s principals have track records as partners of well-known international law firms.  We have worked together on significant corporate transactions for over thirty years. We are experienced in cross-border corporate and commercial transactions of all kinds.  
In addition to transaction-specific advice, we help manage the ongoing legal, regulatory, compliance and contract needs of new and growing global businesses with operations and people in Japan. 
We are fully bilingual and culturally ambidextrous; technology-smart; used to working across time zones with our clients’ global teams. We are good at solving problems practically with a clear grasp of objectives, costs, benefits and legal and business risks.  
The principals of JLX Partners are Stephen Givens, Satoshi Ogishi and Aiko Oue. 
JLX Partners was registered as a foreign law joint enterprise in January 2023.
