メッセージ / Message


“If they break their promise or steal your idea, don’t hesitate to call me.”  Japanese companies doing business in America should not be worried about the prospect of litigation.  Lawsuits are common in America and can be used by companies to further their business and political goals. My firm has experience with litigation in federal and state court as Plaintiff and as Defendant.  We handle disputes over contracts as well as intellectual property and employment.
