Masato Ohsugi Director, Head of Japan desk London +44 (0)20 7184 4798

I am a director and head of our Japan desk. I have more than 18 years of public accounting and consulting experience in Japan and the UK.

In 2017, I transferred to the UK firm in secondment and since then I have helped clients on cross-border transactions between Japan and the UK. I also look after Japanese companies based in Europe from an audit, tax and advisory perspective.

I have a core focus on financial due diligence and specialise in transaction advisory projects for private equity including corporation reconstruction funds and strategically acquisitive corporate clients. My background includes managing M&A buy-side and sell-side, financial and accounting due diligence processes and financial management for both corporate and financial buyers.

Outside of work, my wife and I enjoy spending time with our two children. We like travelling across Europe as we love finding a cultural difference between Europe and Japan.
