Born on June 11, 1974.
Raised in Kyotanabe City, Kyoto Prefecture, and graduated from Rakusei Junior High School and Senior High School.
When I first became a lawyer, I experienced a number of lawsuits and learned about trial practice. After experiencing corporate law practice in which the clients were a wide range of companies, including financial institutions and manufacturing companies, I went to study in the U.S. and spent a year in law school studying financial laws of the United States, and I passed the New York Bar Examination. I worked at a law firm in Singapore for the next year and was responsible for legal matters of Japanese companies in Southeast Asia. After returning to Japan, I have been involved in the international cases such as international transactions of corporations and support for overseas expansion as well as corporate legal affairs related to finance, real estate, and other matters, and civil and criminal cases involving individuals. My hobbies include watching baseball games, playing golf, and overseas trips. When I was a university student, I belonged to the dance sport club.
