Saturday morning’s Yomiuri reported that the GOJ is considering amending the Act on Special Measures concerning the Handling of Legal Services by Foreign Lawyers with the goal of revitalizing the “international arbitration” market in Japan. With the envisaged revision, foreign lawyers with less legal experience abroad will be allowed to practice law in Japan. They will also be allowed to open law firms in partnership with Japanese lawyers. The GOJ is reportedly hoping that more international arbitration on business disputes will take place in Japan as a result of an increase in foreign lawyers.
