New office for Ogier as firm celebrates ten years in Tokyo


23 February 2018

Ogier is marking its tenth year in Japan with a move to expanded office premises.

Ogier was the first offshore firm to establish a presence in Japan in 2008, and the team there has been led by Skip Hashimoto ever since.

The firm has long been advising clients in the Japanese banking & finance, corporate and investment funds market on offshore legal matters, working alongside representatives of corporate service provider Ogier Global Limited.

Ogier Global provides trustee services to Cayman Islands unit trust structures, being the vehicle of choice for Japanese investors.

Led by Fiona Barrie, who has over 27 years of experience in the trust industry and has significant expertise in Japanese investment trusts, Ogier Global's trustee services is one of the most experienced independent trustees in the market.

Skip said: "We continue to develop strong relationships within the Japanese investment funds industry and this move reflects our growing presence here.

"We anticipate sustained growth in work from Japanese clients, supported by our colleagues in the Hong Kong office, as demand for offshore legal services continues to grow here in Tokyo."

Ogier's Asian team includes some of the most prominent offshore practitioners in the continent: two of the firm's partners were named in Asian Legal Business' top ten offshore lawyers in Asia (practice partner Nicholas Plowman and Head of Asian Banking & Finance Anthony Oakes) and partner Kate Hodson was named Best Offshore Lawyer in the Euromoney Legal Media Group Asia Women in Business Law Awards.
