大塚・木梨国際綜合法律事務所 談話写真

After working in Tokyo, Otsuka established the firm in Fukuoka in 1978. In the beginning we were entirely dedicated to Japanese cases, but in time we started to receive cases from foreigners on a variety of topics, especially from Chinese and Koreans. Currently our firm covers legal areas from the basic ones of Japanese law (civil, criminal, commercial, family, etc.) to more complicated ones involving cross–border disputes and transactions.

    For consultations from overseas

    For local cases, law suits need to be filed in the court that has jurisdiction based on the defendants’ place of residence. Normally a case can take 1 or 2 years to be solved. Nowadays the conference system by phone is introduced, so except special cases like interrogation of witnesses, lawyers do not necessarily need to appear in court. Thanks to the developed transportation system in Japan and the introduction of the telephone conference system, lawyers are able to handle cases in other areas of Japan.

    Our law firm is able to accept cases from overseas against companies located anywhere in Japan or people residing in Japan.
