Visiting Foreign Attorney Program

Given Masuda Funai's close connection with Japanese businesses, for many years the firm has maintained a unique visiting attorney program where an attorney licensed to practice law in Japan (bengoshi) will intern with the firm for a one to two-year period. Many of these visiting attorneys have gone on to pass the New York State Bar Exam while interning with Masuda Funai. This program has facilitated an important sharing of information and insight and has been of great benefit to the firm and our clients, as well as to the visiting attorneys.

In 2003, the firm broadened its program and hosted its first Malaysian visiting attorney.
