Measures against COVID-19

As the period for staying vigilant against the rebound of the coronavirus infection by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government came to an end on May 22, 2022, we have relaxed the restrictions on the number of staff working in the office. However, as we continue to carry out staggered commuting hours for our staff, the hours of our reception desk, conference room usage, and operations of our main telephone number will be limited to 10:30 to 16:30.
Lawyers who work from home can use remote computer access and will continue to be reachable via online meeting platforms, email, direct lines and mobile lines, as usual.
As for meetings with our lawyers or staff, although we currently have no restrictions against face-to-face meetings, please follow the following guidelines to help us prevent the spread of infection.
When coming to our office, we ask that you disinfect your hands, wear a non-woven mask (both disinfectant and masks are always available in our reception area), and take your body temperature using a thermographic body temperature measuring system or non-contact thermometer. Please note that we may ask you to refrain from attending your meeting if your body temperature is 37°C or higher.
During meals, we ask our lawyers and staff to follow the instructions of the local governments, refrain from talking when they are not wearing masks, and to eat silently. We appreciate your understanding on this matter.
Depending on the infection situation in the future, we may take further measures to minimize the risk to our clients, lawyers, and staff. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause to everyone, including our clients, but we appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
