Withers now runs to 17 offices and a personnel list of about 1,000 people. The Tokyo office will be called Withers Japan, Zeirishi Houjin. Margaret Robinson, managing director of Withers, said: 'We are...very excited to add an affiliate office in Japan to our network, and anticipate that it will result in new ways of working with clients across Asia and the US west coast, where we are also investing in substantial growth.'
