City-Yuwa Partners was formed in 2003 upon the merger of a cross-border transaction-based firm and a firm specialized in litigation, insolvency and real estate law. Following the 2005 merger with one of Japan's top patent litigation boutiques and the addition of many partners with diverse backgrounds and experiences, City-Yuwa has grown into one of Japan's preeminent law firms capable of providing a full range of legal services.
