K&L Gates LLP has expanded its Tokyo office with the addition of 10 lawyers from Clifford Chance LLP including partner Keiji Isaji.
Isaji concentrates on civil, commercial and criminal disputes including finance, media, aviation, and white-collar matters.
He also advises on dispute resolution, securities, banking and regulatory matters relating to the Japanese banking law.
He has previously represented major companies such as Japan Airlines and worked for the Japanese legal department of Citibank.
“With the addition of these distinguished practitioners, we take a major step toward a full offering of services in our Tokyo office,” said K&L Gates chairman and global managing partner Peter Kalis.
