Introduction

From the foundation of our firm as “Oshiro Law Office” in the city of Kobe in 1923 and our renaming as “Higashimachi Law Office” in 1993, we have developed into one of the few full-service law firms in Kobe thanks to the support of all of our lawyers, staff and clients. Even prior to growing into our position as the largest firm in Hyogo Prefecture, we have been devoted to creating a distinct firm based on the clear principle of becoming a full-service law firm capable of handling matters at the national and international level.
To better provide legal services to our clients over a wider range of practice areas, in June 2010, we incorporated as “Higashimachi LPC” and opened our Tokyo office, followed by our Imabari office in December of the same year.
To make the most of this opportunity, we have been active in ensuring we provide complete services in Tokyo and Imabari while maintaining our Kobe office as our main office, and all of our lawyers and staff are committed to providing high-quality service to our clients over a wide range of practice areas, both in Japan and internationally.
