The Japan Chapter of the Women's White Collar Defense Association was launched in November 2019, and it is the third chapter in Asia Pacific.

The mission of the Japan Chapter is to provide a forum for female lawyers and consultants who focus in white collar defense, investigations, and compliance. Membership is open to those who have or are developing practices in these areas, even if white collar defense work only forms a component of their practice. The Chapter’s events and initiatives will provide members with educational opportunities, as well as building relationships and networking amongst the chapter members and the members of other chapters around the globe.


The Japan Chapter accepts Law Firm Attorney Members and Consultant Members as defined:  

Law Firm Attorney Member: Women attorney private practitioners primarily practicing in the area of White Collar Defense and Investigations, defined as those who specialize in the representation of corporations, other organizations and individuals facing government enforcement actions (criminal, civil, regulatory, and administrative), and in internal investigations, compliance and ethics matters.   

Consultant Member: Women professionals who work at consulting firms (or non-attorney professionals who work at law firms), specialize in the White Collar Defense and Investigations field, and who otherwise qualify under the WWCDA membership criteria and offer support services and referral opportunities to attorneys in the practice. 

Some WWCDA and chapter events may be limited to women attorney private practitioner (law firm attorney) members only.  

All Members must have their primary work address in the same location as our chapter.
