He is the chairman of ILS Shimoda Office, which he founded in 1997. The firm, which specialises in the immigration law of Japan, has handled nearly 50,000 cases of corporate and personal immigration-related applications in Japan since its establishment. ILS Shimoda Office represents many of the world's largest multinational companies in a wide variety of industries, including banking, software and IT, pharmaceuticals, automotive and manufacturing, among others, and is recognised as one of the most experienced firms for corporate immigration in Japan.
