The combined firm will ramp up Bingham's presence in Asia, increasing the number of Japanese lawyers in the firm's Tokyo office to 50.

Bingham's chairman Jay Zimmerman said: "We're creating a client-driven leading restructuring, financial services and corporate firm with solid resources in Japan, further expanding Bingham's global reach."
New Tokyo International Law Office is a cross-border restructuring and insolvency firm with 22 lawyers.
Zimmerman said: "The firm is well positioned to accommodate clients based in Japan and those conducting business there."
