Features of Our Practice

As technological innovation has become increasingly sophisticated and multi-disciplined, we have been developing closer cooperation among our patent attorneys and technical assistants, bringing together their diverse technical backgrounds in areas such as communications, physics, information technology and software, as well as the engineering specialties in mechanical, precision, material, metallurgical and chemical fields, in order to provide our comprehensive expertise in a well-coordinated and professional manner.

As a result, in our current practice we have been entrusted with the filing and prosecution of patent applications both in Japan and abroad by major electrical, mechanical and material manufacturing companies, as well as by numerous small and medium sized companies, in every major area of technology. In addition, we are regularly retained for the filing and prosecution of patent applications in Japan by aerospace, electrical, computer, and chemical manufacturing companies in the United States, Europe and Asia, and the filing and prosecution of patent applications both in Japan and abroad, including appeals and trials, litigation, opinion work, licensing assistance and other matters.

We fully understand that in intellectual property, trademarks are no less important than patents, utility models or designs. Based on this, we have a group of patent attorneys specializing in and dedicated to trademark issues, to provide comprehensive trademark services of outstanding quality to ensure the full satisfaction of our clients.

We have accumulated broad experience in foreign matters over the past 40 years, and are making a continuous effort to foster our international orientation. To further enhance our international business skills, our patent attorneys attend seminars and training programs in the United States and in Europe regarding current foreign practices, and staff members participate in language education and office skills training programs. As a result, one of the features of our office is a heavy focus on foreign cases. Of our present practice, more than half is directed to handling Japanese applications for our foreign clients, and foreign applications for our Japanese clients.
