4 times successive winning of Trading Company In-House Team of the Year for Asian Legal Business (ALB) Japan Law Awards 2013
June 5, 2013
Asian Legal Business (ALB) held its “ALB Japan Law Awards 2013” and ITOCHU Corporation won the “Trading Company In-House Team of the Year” award for the 4th consecutive year (the 5th time of receiving awards). This is the 9th year ALB has held this annual ceremony to commend law firms and corporate legal departments that have achieved excellent results in the previous year. ALB assessed and then bestowed awards in different categories (this year there were 26 categories) to law firms and corporate legal departments that have greatly contributed with expertise and flexibility to facilitating acquisitions and resolving conflicts that have been attracting attention.
We believe we won the awards in recognition of how ITOCHU’s sales activities and front-line legal activities worked together, mainly on major acquisition projects. Looking ahead, the Legal Division will endeavor to do practical legal work based on a front-line-oriented “pro-active” approach.
