Nobuoki Toshimitsu is an Associate attorney practicing in the area of labor and employment law (employer’s side). In recent years, there have been frequent changes in Japanese labor and employment laws, and the Labor Standards Inspection Office has been strengthening the applicable regulations. It has thus become necessary to promptly handle new issues which arise in connection with such changes, such as dealing with issues related to harassment, mental health, and foreign workers. Furthermore, there have recently been quite a few cases involving M&A transactions in Japan where employment and management issues have unexpectedly become an obstacle. In such cases, Mr. Toshimitsu is able to render specific assistance and advice so that corporate development will not be hindered by any such employment or management issues.

Mr. Toshimitsu has also been focusing on numerous litigation and negotiation matters on behalf of his clients.
