A note to our foreign and U.S. clients about data security
Our unencrypted foreign client data are stored exclusively outside of the United States and Europe without the use of backdoor-laden proprietary software or third party cloud(s). These important data security features, which set us apart from nearly all multinational law firm offices, provide jurisdictional protection against subpoena under the Patriot Act, U.S. and U.K. government data collection, and forensic e-discovery.
United States notarization in Japan
Our Tokyo office also provides U.S. notary services in Japan without the hassle or wasted time of U.S. Embassy security and scheduling. Our U.S. notarization services in Tokyo are available to anyone filing a document in the United States.
