Multilingual Lawyer: Kazuto Yamamoto

Episode 18

The USLawEssentials Law and Language podcast continues its series of interviews with multilingual lawyers as Stepehn Horowitz speaks with Kazuto Yamamoto, a partner in the Daiichi LPC law firm in Japan who also Chairs the International Committee of the Osaka Bar Association.

Yamamoto-sensei discusses his career path (and travel paths) which have taken him around the world. He shares invaluable advice based on his work as an attorney in Japan, the United States, and China. In addition, Yamamoto-sensei, who earned an advanced degree in the United States, reflects on legal education and improving one’s legal English.

This is a great opportunity to learn from an incredibly accomplished, yet modest, international attorney.

We also learn that Yamamoto-sensei is an avid American football fan!

Here are a few football terms that we hear in this episode and their use in business English

Quarterback (taking the lead on a project)

Huddle up (meet and discuss a situation)

Third and Long (A situation where there is a large challenge and not much time to solve it)

A Hail Mary (A somewhat desperate effort to resolve a problem)
