Renowned Japanese Law Firm Atsumi & Sakai Joins L&E Global

L&E Global, a worldwide leader for cross-border labour and employment law services, is proud to announce that the preeminent full-service business firm Atsumi & Sakai has joined L&E Global as our Affiliated Member in Japan.

Jackson Lewis is a founding member of L&E Global, an international alliance of law firms which provide counsel to employers on labor relations, employment law, immigration law and employee benefits through 23 international members, which combined have more than 1,500 attorneys across five continents.

Over the past 10+ years, Atsumi & Sakai has successfully cultivated a reputation for excellence that extends across all fields of business and finance law. Its team of labour and employment law specialists supports the firm’s innovative approach to client services, delivering practical advice and comprehensive support through effective communications with individual clients in English, Japanese and Chinese.

L&E Global’s Executive Director Jeroen Douwes spoke of the newly established affiliation between L&E Global and Atsumi & Sakai, saying, “Employment law experts continue to be in high-demand, especially from multinationals that want effective, comprehensive and innovative legal services, competitively priced, and free from time zone-imposed impediments.”

John Sander, Chairman of L&E Global and co-leader of the International Employment Issues practice group at Jackson Lewis P.C., added that, “Japan is a key jurisdiction to our US and multinational clients. We look forward to working with the deep Atsumi & Sakai team to provide support in this critically important region.”

“Japan has recently undertaken a highly-ambitious campaign to reform its employment laws and bring them in line with current global-market trends,” said Tatsuo Yamashima, Partner at Atsumi & Sakai. “At the same time, we have witnessed a rise in workplace harassment-related disputes, a greater effort to institute guarantees of equal pay for equal work, allow for flexible working time arrangements and improve wages. The impact this is having on employers cannot be underestimated. As a member of L&E Global, our clients will benefit from having access to an international alliance of employment law specialists, and the enormous resources that come with it. And we are eager to work with L&E Global firms in supporting the workplace law needs of multinational clients in Japan.”
