Kuribayashi Sogo Law Office was established on April 1, 2003, and April 1, 2023 marks the office’s 20th year in business. In addition, our representative, Mr. Kuribayashi, was admitted to the bar on April 1, 1993, and will celebrate his 30th year as an attorney on April 1 of this year. Despite many twists and turns, we have been able to successfully celebrate our 20th and 30th anniversary thanks to the support of our many clients and other related parties. We would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all of you. When Mr. Kuribayashi was admitted to the bar in 1993, the Heisei period had just begun and there were still lingering traces of the bubble economy. Since then, the Japanese economy has fluctuated greatly, and the society has changed drastically over the past 30 years, including the spread of the Internet and cell phones. Recently, various events have occurred one after another, such as the financial crisis, the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake, and COVID-19, which have also affected our daily lives. These 30 years have also brought about significant changes in way to work of lawyers and the profession of lawyers. Looking back on my 30 years as a registered attorney, it seems like a long time, but it has been a very short 30 years. Fortunately, many young lawyers and staff have joined our office, and we have become a vibrant office. We will continue to devote myself to the practice of law as We have in the past, and We will continue to support many of our clients. We sincerely appreciate your continuous patronage and guidance and encouragement.
