Aside from fostering Indo-Japan bilateral relations, the move enhances SNG’s ability to deliver specialised consultancy, advisory and legal services to its Japanese clientele.

“With the firm’s vast knowledge of doing business in India, we hope to be the single point advisory and legal representation firm for not only the sogo soshas or other established Japanese companies in India but for the micro, small and medium Japanese enterprises who are looking towards India and vice versa,” said Ashish Kumar, partner and head of the Japan desk for the firm.

“Through the Japan desk the firm will also act as a window for Indian businesses wanting to expand their footprint in Japan.”
