Japanese law firm Atsumi & Sakai (A&S) has hired corporate practitioner Fumiyo Doi as partner in Tokyo from GE Healthcare, where she held an in-house role.
Doi joined GE Healthcare last year from another in-house role at Amazon Japan, where she worked about six years. She spent the early part of her career at Nagashima Ohno & Tsunematsu.
Experienced in the technology and pharmaceutical sectors, Doi advises on fintech, communications and intellectual property matters, among other things.
With this addition, the number of A&S partners in Tokyo is now 93. In January, the firm lost corporate specialist Go Hashimoto to Oh-Ebashi LPC & Partners.
