LESJ’s Goal

LESJ aims to provide professional assistance to English-speaking residents in Japan who face the language and cultural barrier in the complex Japanese business world.

What Is LESJ?

Founded in 2010 by Kumiko Tanaka, LESJ (Legal English Services in Japan) is a Certified Administrative Procedures Specialist office and is specialized in providing services of document preparation in English and Japanese for: government approvals, real estate transactions, generic business correspondence, and legal purposes. A Certified Administrative Procedures Specialist is a legal profession under the Certified Administrative Procedures Specialist Act in Japan and is also known as an Administrative Scrivener or Gyoseishoshi Lawyer.

What Do Certified Administrative Procedures Specialists Do?

The primary occupation of Certified Administrative Procedures Specialists is "to prepare filings to government agencies, and other documents related to rights, liabilities and evidence of facts, for compensation at the request of others." Certified administrative procedures specialists have a monopoly on this practice under Japanese law. Certified Administrative Procedures Specialists may also give advice on the preparation of such documents, one of the few exceptions to the attorney-at-law's monopoly on giving "legal advice" for compensation.
