Legal professions in Japan are segmented into attorneys, patent agents, judicial scriveners, administrative scriveners, licensed tax accountants, and social insurance and labour consultants. These legal professions have respective specialized areas of practice: attorneys mainly handle litigation and transactional work, patent agents patent prosecution, judicial scriveners the registration of real estate, administrative scriveners filing with government agencies, licensed tax accountants tax matters, and social insurance and labour consultants social insurance matters. Meanwhile, certain legal professions share common areas of practice, for example, attorneys being allowed to practice tax matters and judicial scriveners being allowed to handle certain types of litigation. Among all legal professions, attorneys have the most universal qualification and are allowed to handle virtually all types of legal matters.
Administrative Scriveners handle a broad range of legal matters. Although the principal work of an Administrative Scrivener is, as its name indicates, filing with, and reporting to, government agencies mainly in connection with business permits and licenses, other important areas of practice include immigration, inheritance and incorporation matters. The work of filing with government agencies is allowed exclusively to Administrative Scriveners. Both Administrative Scriveners and attorneys are allowed to handle immigration matters; however, in practice, most immigration matters are handled by Administrative Scriveners.
