A Message from the Managing Attorney
The next generation of law firms will necessitate a team of legal professionals and a broad legal network capable of addressing and executing intricate international legal assignments. We are keen on recruiting individuals with a knack for cross-border legal operations, whether as integral team members of our firm or as associates in our network of collaborative law firms. Ideally, we’re seeking individuals who are certified foreign lawyers, fluent in another language, and familiar with both foreign and Japanese law.
Our vision is to be a law firm that forges an international network in the rapidly globalising IT sector and provides targeted legal support to IT enterprises that bear significance in Japan. To bring this vision to life, we’re actively looking for team members who share our commitment and can contribute meaningfully to our goals.
Meet Our Team
“My internship at MONOLITH LAW OFFICE is balanced with law school, typically working flexible hours on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. Despite initial concerns as a foreigner, I found the firm employs many non-Japanese law professionals and English-speaking Japanese staff. Communication can be challenging in complex legal discussions, but daily interactions are smooth. Casual dress code for interns adds to the relaxed work environment.”
“In my role at MONOLITH LAW OFFICE, I find information crucial for translation and interpretation work. On a daily basis, I first understand the task’s nature, seek needed information, and start translating. I consult with an attorney for any uncertainties to avoid translation errors that can lead to significant revisions. My main duties involve translating contracts between Japanese and English, assisting in foreign hires’ interviews, attending overseas meetings, and providing simultaneous interpretation for our foreign SaaS client.”
