Foreign Attorney

Harold Godsoe

Admitted in New York

I have worked all over the world but I am most firmly a social and economic Japan optimist. Now in Tokyo I’m the proud Chair of External Relations at the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Japan, and a Canada-trained, New York-licensed attorney. I'm also a native of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

"Some people prefer to see things up close, others from afar. Both perspectives should be vantage points, not fixed positions…. Effective leaders zoom in and zoom out.” – HBR Mar 2011
