After spending more than 20 years in “Big Law”, including as a partner at White & Case LLP and Orrick LLP

flexibility counseling and acting for clients when and where they need assistance.

Asia Pacific Law primarily advises and assists clients in Japan and the U.S. with their intellectual
property, commercial transactions, venture capital and dispute related needs.
Prior to returning to the U.S. in 2019, David lived in Tokyo for most of his adult life working in sales
