Venerable general law firm YUASA & HARA is a gem that shines on both the contentious and non-contentious fronts. Through its membership to Unilaw and TerraLex, the firm has access to over 16,000 lawyers in more than 100 countries. Well-versed in contentious cross-border practices, partner Kozo Yabe has impressive overseas experience: he has worked at two US law firms and been an adjunct professor of law at the University of Illinois for more than 20 years. He is a litigation wizard who just celebrated his 30th year at YUASA & HARA. Yabe’s fellow fighter on the contentious front is similarly worldly Osamu Suzuki. On the other side of the divide stands veteran and partner Hiromichi Aoki, who specialises in non-contentious matters and unfair competition.
