  • Frost Brown Todd Launches Seminar Series for Japanese Businesses in Greater Cincinnati

The first seminar in a quarterly series for Japanese businesses will be held in the Cincinnati office of Frost Brown Todd (FBT) on Thursday, July 28. Held entirely in Japanese, the first seminar will focus on HR issues for Japanese companies in the U.S., in particular the legal fundamentals in the context of employee hiring and firing.  The first seminar in the series will be presented in a collaboration between FBT and the Japan America Society of Greater Cincinnati. 

“Today, more than 120 Japanese companies are established in the Greater Cincinnati area, providing some 13,000 local jobs. We are responding by offering the information and guidance they need to do business and thrive,” says Kenjiro LeCroix, FBT attorney and chair of the firm’s Japan Desk. LeCroix will present at the first seminar along with Sochi Motegi, HR Advisor from Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America, Inc.

The Greater Cincinnati region has one of the lowest costs of doing business in the United States and is overall considered one of the most hospitable metropolitan areas for foreign companies. Currently, more than 450 foreign-owned firms employ more than 50,000 workers and professionals in the area.
