Birthplace: Tokyo

Living in the US since 2017

place of residence: West Chester, NY

Current occupation: Lawyer(Japan and NY)

Current title: Co-Head of Nagashima Ohno & Tsunematsu, New York Office

Career: He graduated with an LL.B. from the University of Tokyo in 1999 and an LL.M. from The University of Chicago Law School in 2006.

He worked at Ropes & Gray LLP in Boston and New York from 2006 to 2008. He has also been a member of the contracts supervisory committee of Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) since 2010 and a part-time lecturer (civil law) at the legal department of the University of Tokyo from 2014 to 2015.

Role at FLATjp: Legal, operational support

Hope for FLATjp: In the U.S., access to medical facilities is not good, and I myself experienced that I did not know where to go even if I had a health concern. I think it would be wonderful if FLATjp could bring together Japanese people with similar concerns in a very "ふらっと(FLAT)" way and help them improve their health.

Interest: Space

Others: My main practice areas are M&A, private equity investments, acquisition finance, technology and space, financial regulation, and other complex corporate matters in general, with particular experience in cross-border matters, including those between the U.S. and Japan.
