About Access International Law Group
Access International Law Group, based in San Francisco and Silicon Valley, provides high-quality, cost-efficient legal assistance to entrepreneurs and emerging companies expanding internationally. Access International’s principal, David Hoppe, has several years Eexperience living and working in Japan, and travels to Japan often to assist Japan-based clients with international licensing, joint ventures, venture capital, and other matters. Clients of Access International include technology, e-commerce, media, and consulting firms based in Japan, Hong Kong and elsewhere in Asia.
Focused on Growing Companies
Access International was founded on the premise that growing companies are best served by a law firm that is able to offer personal service on a cost-efficient basis. High hourly fees and narrow lawyer specializations often mean that the large multinational law firms are not able to serve smaller companies effectively. The practice of Access International is focused specifically on emerging companies and entrepreneurs, and as a result the Firm is able to provide the personal, responsive service required by these clients in rapidly-changing market environments ∁Ewithin the budget of a growing company.
Access International supports emerging companies based in Japan with a range of issues confronting emerging companies expanding overseas, including the following:
• Internet, technology and media-related transactions
• Joint ventures and mergers/acquisitions
• Technology and media licensing
• US market-entry issues
• Protection of intellectual property rights
• Venture capital
