Kodansha Advanced Media is the digital arm of a large Japanese publisher. We needed an attorney who could both advise us on the licensing deals that were essential for our US launch, while working simultaneously in both the Japanese and the American business environments. We found all that, and more, in David. He was key to our US success, and a genuine pleasure to work with as well.
