I am excited to keep in touch with cutting-edge technologies in various fields. I always strive to protect broad and strong rights for the superior inventions our clients propose. I believe it is a basic but important procedure to grasp the essence of the invention accurately, and to carefully study how the invention sets itself apart from conventional technologies. I would like to enhance my skills in performing the basic procedures, and keep up with the trends of the times through various juridical decisions, appeal decisions and criteria for examinations.
