Speaking about the appointment, Russell Bedford CEO, Stephen Hamlet, said: “It is a pleasure to welcome Shinsei as our new member in Tokyo. Following a successful visit to the firm’s offices in April, I was very impressed by the partners, their wide-ranging professional backgrounds and particularly their assured international focus. It is this professional attitude, combined with the firm’s burning ambition that inevitably resulted in their appointment as a Russell Bedford member firm.”

We are excited to embark on this new journey of development.”
