Our 20 year history as a full service law firm uniquely qualifies us to provide the full scope of legal services requested by various clients. Our attorneys have handled a variety of civil and commercial litigation matters between individuals, corporations, local governments, government agencies in all areas of the law including construction, joint liability, finances, insurance, and fraud. Our knowledge and experience from years of practice and research enable us to handle these cases on a comprehensive and efficient basis.

We at Haemaru communicate fully and promptly with clients from the early stages of consultation and appointment, making the expected results and potential pitfalls clear to potential clients. Not only do we take winnable cases, we take pride in processing cases with passion and competence in cooperation with our clients.

The purpose of litigation is to gain relief for the client’s injury or to prevent injury; therefore, even at the pre-litigation stage, Haemaru keeps in mind the final vindication of the client’s rights. We expend our best efforts from Day 1 to bring adequate relief and prevent injury both before and after litigation. To achieve these goals we have a range of means in our arsenal, from preservative actions(provisional attachment, provisional measures) to enforcement after obtaining judgment.
More specifically, Haemaru makes a comprehensive assessment beforehand, including the complexity of a case, the expertise required, and its scale. We then put together a team of lawyers composed of experienced attorneys with long careers as judges and advocates, and rising attorneys with comparative law perspectives, and foreign trained attorneys. This work flow ensures that litigation is handled for optimal results in a consistent, systematic manner.
