International Scholarships & Secondments

Duncan from the Litigation team

What: Secondment
Where: Nishimura & Asahi

"A year at Japan's largest law firm was an incredible experience. An opportunity to work with lawyers and clients from Japan and across the world, on a diverse range of matters from complex international arbitration and cross-border M&A to the introduction of an Italian Pizza franchise. It was different, challenging and rewarding.

Like its lawyers, Tokyo doesn't sleep. There are far too many adventures to be had! An unparalleled diversity of restaurants. World class museums and cutting edge fashion. Easy access to mountains for snowboarding in Winter and hiking in Summer. Roller-coasters where you shoot zombies at the same time. If it is in your imagination, it is probably in Tokyo."
