I believe that getting out of my comfort zone and actively diving into the unfamiliar world helps me to grow and build new connections.

How Takahiko is building a better working world

I meet many entrepreneurs and people from NPOs for my work and in my private life. At times, I am amazed by the conviction and energy these people bring to change and build a better working world. I too, will stay the course, take things a step at a time and work together with like-minded people to provide legal support for my clients who want to build a better working world. “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
