Japanese firm Mori Hamada to launch in Yangon and Osaka
Mori Hamada & Matsumoto plans to launch an office in Yangon and another in Osaka this year.
The Yangon office will be led by corporate and finance partner Takeshi Mukawa, who is currently working in the firm’s Singapore office. It will launch in the Spring of 2014 after it receives regulatory approval from Myanmar’s authorities.
The Osaka office is scheduled to launch on 1 April 2014, and will be the firm’s third office in Japan. The Osaka base will focus on corporate, M&A, finance, intellectual property, litigation and alternative dispute resolution matters. It will initially be staffed by corporate and finance partner Takuya Eguchi and associates Hirokazu Hayashi and Takamasa Sato.
