I am MinterEllison's Japan Practice Leader and am a trusted adviser to my clients on their public and private M&A transactions, strategic joint ventures and a broad range of corporate, commercial and governance matters. I regularly advise both foreign and domestic clients across a broad range of sectors including Energy & Resources, Renewables, Tech and FMCG and focus on advising Japanese corporates on their Australian investments and operations.
I also frequently advise my clients on foreign investment regulation and dealings with Government in relation to FIRB and ACCC.
I have law degrees from both Kobe University in Japan and the Australian National University and, as a result, work seamlessly in Japanese and English and have a deep understanding of Japanese business and culture ‒ attributes that my clients value highly. I am practically minded and a strong communicator who enjoys working closely with my clients to help them achieve their commercial and strategic objectives.
