Client Testimonial

“I wholeheartedly recommend the IMS law firm to any non-Japanese who may be interested in applying for permanent resident status in Japan. IMS was recommended to me by word of mouth, and now I can add to that recommendation. I would also add that I had a couple of unexpected situations come up during the process and Murai-san worked with me very flexibly and helpfully in each situation. Permanent Residency is a complicated and important process, so it was valuable having an experienced partner.” TEDxTokyo Curator
