Nishimura & Asahi, Japan’s largest law firm, has invested in Reynen Court, a curated “app store” allowing access to numerous legal-tech software applications via a secure platform.

Following the deal, Nishimura becomes the first Asian law firm to join the New York-headquartered company’s investor consortium, which includes firms like Clifford Chance, Latham & Watkins and Orrick.

Reynen Court’s platform allows Nishimura to run cloud-based applications in private clouds under the firm’s control, enabling testing and adoption of the latest legal technologies while maintaining security and stability, and also localising global legal-tech products for the Japan and Asia markets.

Officially launched in 2018, Reynen Court announced in October that it had secured $4.5 million in funding from investors as Clifford Chance and Latham & Watkins.
