Using Legal Services the Smart Way
There was a time when there were only around 20,000 lawyers throughout Japan, but over the course of 10 years, the number of lawyers have doubled and people have become more familiar their services. However, despite the familiarity, there still remains a gap between people's perceived impression of lawyers and reality. Through this presentation, I will be providing an overview of how to get the most out of legal services by mainly explaining how the legal fee system works.
Mr. Shiro Nakayama(Lawyer Ernesto Law Office)
Mr. Shiro Nakayama graduated from Hitotsubashi University – Faculty of Law - and started his career at Nippon Steel Corporation. During his time at Nippon Steel Corporation, he started off his career in the Iron and Steel division, working in Sales, Production and Engineering to get an overall understanding of the business operations. He later on obtained the role of consultant and developer in the Urban Development division, in which he gained extensive hands-on experience in the legal area, including work which required knowledge with the Building Code, Large-Scale Retail Stores Location Law, Land Readjustment Act, Soil Contamination Countermeasures Act, etc. He has also obtained negotiation skills for negotiating delegation agreements, outsourcing agreements, beneficiary right agreements, shareholders agreements, etc. He left the company in 2004 to pursue his graduate studies at Surugadai University's Faculty of Law and Law Research Department. In 2008, Mr. Nakayama obtained his degree and registered with the Tokyo Bar Association.
Mr. Nakayama then worked as an Associate Lawyer at Tetsumaru Hatanaka Firm, LPC, and later on worked for Bridge Roots for 3 years, in which 2 years were spent working as a Representative Lawyer for the Tokyo office, providing legal support to active small and medium sized businesses. Bridge Roots also has a branch office in Shanghai that was very competitive in the Chinese legal area, and that has allowed Mr. Nakayama to also enhance his experience with dealing issues between Japanese and Chinese businesses.
In August 2012, Mr. Nakayama established Ernesto Law Office. His company's goal is to provide extensive services which allow the customer to experience some truly valuable legal service. Currently, Mr. Nakayama's main interests involve conflicts with real estate, labour and bankruptcy/rehabilitation.
