About the Firm
Miura & Partners was founded in January 2019 by Mr. Ryota Miura, together with a team of experienced attorneys, with the goal of establishing a professional law firm where client satisfaction is the starting point. Our lawyers believe that the role of legal professionals is not just to advise on specific legal provisions, but to provide comprehensive legal advice and support to assist clients in achieving their business goals.
Our practice includes M&A, joint venture, finance, corporate and financial regulation, competition law, intellectual property law, litigation, general corporate legal matters, international trade, and domestic and cross border disputes involving China, India and other regions in Asia. Our lawyers also have in-depth knowledge of new technologies and legal practices in the evolving fields such as blockchain, startups, fintech, big data, medical and healthcare.
Collectively, we offer a one-stop legal solution to our clients.
Miura & Partners consists of the general partnership among Miura & Partners Legal Profession Corporation (LPC), M Partners LPC and the law firm “Miura & Partners” along with the non-members of the LPC.
* “We” and “the firm” as used on this website refer to the combined offices and members conducting business together.
Our Core Values
Diversity & Inclusion
We strongly believe that diversity & inclusion allow us to be more flexible in finding solutions and are essential in order to offer our clients top quality of service.
We have around 20 female lawyers which accounts for one third of the total, which is an exceptionally high ratio among Japanese business law firms.
We also have professionals from China and India who have been with us from day 1 of our operation. Working in a team composed of lawyers qualified in different jurisdictions, we benefit from diverse perspectives and are better able to cultivate respect and understanding of different cultures.
The regulatory landscape in Japan is quickly changing, and regulations have become more complex over the years. We have many lawyers who have worked as public servants at government agencies. These professionals have firsthand knowledge of the organizational culture and standard operating procedures of government bureaucracy.
At the same time, we value long term relationships with our clients so that we can provide legal services in the most efficient and practical way, with a deep understanding of the clients’ business, corporate culture, and strategies. Having lawyers with experience serving as in-house counsel and with deep knowledge in business practice deepens our entire team’s understanding of corporate management.
Full Service & Top Quality
Our lawyers are top professionals in their respective practice areas with expertise acquired through a broad variety of experiences. Many of our founding members have dealt with high profile matters at top Japanese law firms. Our priority is to provide our clients with the highest quality legal advice.
Our team has extensive experience working in international business environments. Many of our partners are qualified both in common law and civil law jurisdictions. We have professionals working in foreign countries including China, Hong Kong, India, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
Some of our partners have experience as legal counsel at international companies and as such, our team has a deep understanding of the political, economic, and cultural environments of different jurisdictions. Our close relationships with renowned law firms around the world allow us to operate smoothly on multi-jurisdictional matters.
We build a unique team for each new matter. This enables us to offer legal services tailored to each client. In a typical retainer arrangement, the contact partner will take charge of the matter by assembling professionals from various practice areas. As a new law firm with around 50 professionals, we work together and know each other well. The small size enables us to build the effective teams.
