Prosecution (Filing, and Response to Office Action), Litigation, and Enforcement in Japan etc. for domestic as well as foreign clients
Filing, and Response to Office Action for Japanese patents, utility models, designs and trade marks for domestic as well as foreign clients

We file to Japanese Patent Office for patents, utility models, designs and trade marks for domestic as well as foreign clients. As for patents, our major tech. fields are electric and electronics, telecommunications, information technologies, semiconductors and other electrics materials, mechanical engineering, system controls, and information technologies including computer software. Japanese specification and a set of claims translated from a foreign language are checked by our experienced patent attorney before filing to improve their quality.

Response to Office Action and Trial
Receiving an office action, we first study the action and its cited reference(s) to prepare our proposed argument and amendment, to maximize the chance to overcome the office action. The OA as well as our proposed argument and amendment are then sent to out client with our comments. We also carry out trials before JPO on behalf of our clients.

Litigation against a trial decision
An applicant may take an action against JPO's trail decision. We take care of litigation against a trial decision before Intellectual Property High Court, Japan.

We also help our client to enforce an intellectual property right, in terms of technical as well as legal issues. Having relationships with experienced lawyers, we may collaborate with them, if necessary, for our client's success.
