Brunswick Group, the strategic advisory firm focused on critical issues, today announced the expansion of its Asia footprint with the opening of an office in Tokyo. Tokyo becomes Brunswick’s 24th office worldwide and sixth office in Asia.
The opening of an office in Tokyo follows more than 10 years of sustained growth for Brunswick’s Japan business. The Tokyo office better enables the firm to serve Japanese companies, as well as clients from around the world operating in Japan, on their most critical financial, regulatory and political, and social issues.
The Tokyo office team forms part of Brunswick’s global Japan team, comprising more than 15 Japan experts and bilingual advisors in the U.S., Europe and Asia. Daisuke Tsuchiya, Head of Japan, oversees the global team, working closely with David Ashton, Partner, and Yoichiro Sato, Director, and a wider team of advisors on the ground in Tokyo.
Neal Wolin, Chief Executive Officer, said: “Over the past decade, we have been privileged to advise some of Japan’s largest and most exciting businesses in crucial situations abroad, as well as international companies expanding their footprint in Japan. Building on the strong momentum the team has developed already, our Tokyo office will significantly enhance our capabilities in the region and allow Brunswick to serve even more clients in Japan and internationally.”
Daisuke Tsuchiya, Partner, Head of Japan, said: “Our Tokyo team will continue to work seamlessly with experienced Japanese speaking advisors in three different timezones and Brunswick’s global sector and offer experts to provide around-the-clock strategic advice to clients. This positions us to support Japanese companies in the most complex and intensive situations they face overseas, and non-Japanese companies for critical issues they face in Japan.”
Tim Payne, Senior Partner, Head of Asia, said: “Our global Japan team had a breakthrough year in 2019 and continued this strong momentum in 2020, winning key mandates for Japanese companies in the U.S., Southeast Asia, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and many non-Japanese companies in Japan in sectors including financial services, consumer industries, tech, media, life sciences, industrials, real estate, hospitality and non-profit. The Japanese market has shown strong growth opportunities, including through the COVID-19 pandemic, with a real appetite among clients for the strategic counsel and support that only Brunswick can provide.”
Brunswick’s Tokyo office is located in the heart of the business district in Marunouchi.
