STW & Partners are pleased to announce that Mr. Yutaka Adachi, who was admitted as an attorney in Japan in 2008, has joined the firm as of April 17, 2017. 
Mr. Adachi is well-versed in overseas legal practice and has a lot of experience in the M&A area both inside and outside Japan.  We firmly believe that, by welcoming Mr. Adachi to the firm, STW & Partners will be able to provide even higher levels of legal service to our clients.

Message from Mr. Adachi:
I started my career as an attorney at Nagashima Ohno & Tsunematsu in 2008 and since then I have gained broad experience in business-related legal practice, in particular in the areas of M&A, the Companies Act, and the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act.  Months of secondment at an IT-related business where I was deeply involved in compliance issues of the business and start-up investment have formed a new core in my career path--providing legal services to IT and start-up companies.  Study and training for three years and a half in the U.S. gave me expertise in the latest M&A-related legal services in the U.S., while I developed skills for the start-up legal practice, including venture financing.
Going forward, I will make full use of my skills and experience to meet the clients' needs more promptly and accurately with sincere attitude and new-found enthusiasm. I would be most grateful for any guidance and encouragement you may be able to give me.
