As a member of the Tokyo Kyodo Group, we provide services specialized in financial and fintech-related licensing.

Tokyo Kyodo Gyoseishoshi Lawyer Office is a Administrative Scrivener office of the Tokyo Kyodo Group, whose strength lies in its specialized services in securities and finance-related business. For those who form or manage funds, we provide support for applications for various permits and approvals related to fund settlement in addition to notifications to administrative agencies (Financial Services Agency, MLIT, etc.) for obtaining and maintaining licenses under the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act and the Act on Specified Joint Real Estate Ventures.


With the advent of the fintech era, the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act is being revised every year, and new laws and regulations are being enacted one after another. Our strength lies not only in the permit and approval procedures for schemes related to financial instruments transactions, which are becoming increasingly complex, but also in tailored and practical services including provision of manuals and various documents necessary for internal controls that our clients need to establish and study through practice, and support to outsource some of their operations.


In addition, through close collaboration with Tokyo Kyodo Accounting Office, Tokyo Kyodo Judicial Scrivener Office, and Tokyo Kyodo IP, we provide seamless services not only in permits and approvals but also in accounting, tax, legal, and intellectual property.
