HONG KONG (CNN Business) -- Carlos Ghosn's lawyer has resigned following his client's brazen escape to Lebanon.

Junichiro Hironaka and seven other members of the former Nissan chief's Japanese defense team submitted letters of resignation to the Tokyo district court on Thursday, Hironaka's law office confirmed to CNN Business.

Ghosn fled to Lebanon late last month, pulling off a stunning breakout from Japan, where he was awaiting trial on charges of financial wrongdoing.
