Greenberg Traurig has made its Asian debut after opening a Tokyo office and forging an exclusive alliance with the Landwell-tied firm Hayabusa Kokusai Law Offices.
New York-based partner Kunichika Nakano – who has a licence to practice both in the US and Japan – will relocate to Tokyo to head the firm’s Japanese practice.

The move comes just a month after Greenberg Traurig concluded an Italian alliance with Studio Santa Maria, the former ally of Berwin Leighton Paisner-tied firm Kramer Levi Naftalis & Frankel.
