It gives us joy and immense pride to share that Yasuyo Horiuchi (Yasu) has completed 5 years with Legal Associates. 

Here's what she has to say about her
experience:

" I joined Legal Associates in January 2016,
with no experience at Legal sector. It was challenging and I could not be here without
support of all the staff and clients including
people who have left already. I appreciate the opportunity given to assist clients directly / indirectly in variety of matters and problems
as a part of team for 5 years."
