New Year holidays| Japanese Law Firms

In Japan, many law firms take their year-end and New Year holidays in conjunction with the court holidays. The court holidays for the new year 2024 is from December 29 to January 3, , which is stipulated in Article 1, Paragraph 1, Item 3 of the law concerning court holidays.

However, since the second Monday of January is a national holiday (“Coming of Age Day”), some law firms take a slightly longer vacation and begin business on January 9.

Our office will be open from January 5th Friday (2024).
