Mio is a young and high-spirited lawyer. She works for maritime cases such as cargo defense and recovery, charter party, collision, ship arrest in addition to ship building, ship sale and ship finance. She is also well-versed in international transaction and criminal cases in Japan.

She had an opportunity to study at the Leuven Catholic University in Belgium in the academic year of 2004, where she learned international business law, quickly absorbing knowledge of the European legal systems. Such experience has been a great advantage for her when working on international cases.

She was a lacrosse player in her college days but has no time for it these days. Lately she enjoys day trips in and around Tokyo. Her favorite food is soft and moist praline chocolate.
