How Junzaburo is building a better working world
“Almost all of my work is cross-border in nature, while every legal system is inherently domestic. My mission is to bridge the gaps across various legal systems and cultures, wherever clients have transactions, projects or problems. I believe that lays the foundation for a better working world for all concerned.”
