Naoki Takahashi

Admitted in Japan and New York

Despite the undeniable appeal of Japan’s lucrative market, newcomers often find it a challenge dealing with Japan’s unique corporate culture and societal norms. I help clients bridge this gap by drawing both on my time studying law in the US, and on my work representing the Japanese government in negotiations over the complex Trans-Pacific Partnership treaty and the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement. These experiences have given me the skills needed to solve complicated problems, cut through bureaucratic red tape, and achieve my clients’ goals.
