East Asia is home to a growing number of global companies that do a great deal of business in the United States. As a result, East Asia is also one of the fastest growing markets for American litigation services. Yet, Asian companies are often inexperienced in understanding and navigating the U.S. legal system.
In EDISCOVERY—JAPAN, Masahiro Morimoto, a provider of IT legal services to Asian companies and American law firms over the past 10 years, offers insights into Japan’s intricate and sophisticated business culture to help American lawyers be better understood and trusted by their Asian clients and participate successfully in Japan’s corporate order.
