  • Patent attorney (2019)


My expertise concerns all stages of patent including counsel on creation and discovery of invention, patent researches, preparation and prosecution of Japan and foreign patent applications, and response to third-party patents. My primary focus is on acquisition of valuable patent right to contribute to client business. My approach is to understand the essence of the invention in close communication with clients and to support clients in every way. I leverage my strength of carefully considering appropriate measures in order to find solutions for clients in terms of both laws and distinction from prior art even when clients have difficulties in acquiring patent right.
