On the tenth anniversary of 3.11, Ms. Mullaney will also look back at the tragic Great East Japan Earthquake, and the legacy and impact of Operation Tomodachi, the U.S.-led disaster relief operation that immediately followed. The solidarity shown in the operation has created a lasting friendship of security and economic alliance between the U.S. and Japan.

With her deep professional and personal knowledge of Japan, Ms. Mullaney focuses on the firm’s Japan portfolio. She supports clients across a variety of sectors, providing them with strategic advice and analysis of Japan’s complex political, economic, and market landscape.
