She has experience working with non-Japanese corporate clients.

In the field of personal law, Ayako handles, among other matters, preparation of wills and inheritance, divorce, traffic accidents, labor disputes, real estate disputes (such as ascertaining boundaries), and medical malpractice.

・In a tax evasion case in March 2013
・In an attempted coercion and indecent assault case in November 2014
