Message From The President

Timothy Langley, CEO of Japan's premier government relations & public affairs consulting firm based in TokyoMy name is Timothy Langley, and I am the founder and CEO of Langley Esquire. My career in government affairs began in 1982 when I became the first foreign national to work in Japan’s government as a policy secretary to former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nakayama Taro. This led me on an unforgettable journey, learning about the intricacies of Japanese politics and their unique approach to policy making.

Since then, I have advised countless multinational companies in their public affairs strategies. I have helped them map and engage stakeholders to influence change in regulations impacting business and commerce in Japan.

Over the years, I have honed my craft and built a team of skilled analysts and consultants to advise companies across various industry sectors. Together, we hope that we can educate the public on Japan’s politics and public policy through our videos and reports. Furthermore, we also hope to help Japan keep up with the latest developments in technology, medicine, and consumer goods through our public affairs services.

I hope that you can gain valuable insights from the Langley Esquire team. If you are facing any difficult issues where you think we could help, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
