Uchida Kiyotaka Law Office

About Our Office

We were founded in Kanazawa, Ishikawa in 2004. We have several attorneys, each of whom has their own specialties. We handle our legal cases through mutual cooperation, however.

As one of these attorneys, I have been thinking that Kanazawa should be more international, but there are very few attorneys who can handle cross-border cases. For this reason, I studied for, and passed, the California bar exam and am now focusing on cross-border issues to make this city more international.
