FRONTEO will continue to work with Covington & Burling to provide useful information to Japanese business professionals. We have a plan to hold a similar event in collaboration with its San Francisco and Palo Alto offices in April. In addition to the regular video recording sessions, we also plan to offer study sessions by inviting some Japanese business professionals to attend and having socializing opportunities to connect business professionals in Japanese companies with talented U.S. based lawyers.
“The firm is honored and pleased to collaborate with FRONTEO on these several different manners. In the videos, we aimed to cover subjects and issues of interest to Japanese companies, and to address questions that we hear from our Japanese clients. We hope, of course, that Japanese businesspersons find them to be helpful. ”
