Happy New Year of the Rooster!

Japan adopts Chinese zodiac signs but celebrates the new year from 1 January, rather than from the Chinese Lunar New Year - another example of how Japan mixes East with West in innovative ways. 2017 marks over two decades of considerable socio-economic and legal change in Japan. Even the sample of my writing on Japanese law linked to this website indicates the breadth and depth of some of these transformations.

Since 2015, Japanese Law Links Pty Ltd has also been involved in major consultancies for the ASEAN Secretariat (on consumer law and policy reforms), and the Centre for International Governance Innovations in Canada (on international investment dispute management), in areas where Japan’s experience and perspectives are very valuable.

Since 2000 Japanese Law Links (JLL) has provided legal commentary, consultancy, risk management and educational services in cross-border contexts especially involving Japan. 
JLL focuses on commercial and consumer contracts, product liability and safety regulation, corporate governance and compliance, and dispute avoidance and resolution - especially arbitration.
