White & Case has poached a partner from PricewaterhouseCooopers in Tokyo. Yasuo Igarashi, who was formerly a partner with PwC, will practice in the tax group of the U.S. firm’s Japanese office. Igarashi has advised on tax matters for more than 28 years and is one of the leading tax advisers on Japanese leveraged leasing transactions. Tokyo office executive partner Gary Thomas believes Igarashi will provide a valuable new dimension to White & Case’s existing practice. The firm in Tokyo offers a broad corporate practice in conjunction with local firm Kandabashi. This includes M&A, structured finance, venture capital and private equity. He says: “Mr. Igarashi’s reputation and experience complements our existing strengths and capabilities. “His recruitment demonstrates our commitment to expanding the Tokyo office’s tax services into the full range of tax and tax planning areas.” White & Case, in conjunction with Japanese firm Kandabashi, now has 60 fee-earners working in Japan. The firm has 1,300 lawyers worldwide in 38 different offices.
