Pillsbury has been voted by Japanese companies as one of the top seven US law firms for overseas legal issues in a survey conducted by Japanese newspaper Nikkei.
The Corporate Law Attorney Survey received responses from 159 companies, including both domestic companies as well as major international organisations.
The survey tackled questions about what types of matters Japanese clients use foreign firms for and how they decide which firms to use. The majority of respondents said their companies used foreign law firms for overseas legal cases. Clients noted their preference for firms that provide services on a global scale and have Japanese-speaking attorneys.
