As the business environments of our clients are drastically changing every day, we stay persistent in exploring a way through the challenges that is most suitable for the situation of our clients while also thinking outside the box.

For business developments in the global market, we offer proactive assistance by offering our expertise to support IP strategies of our clients in a broad range, from acquisition of rights to handling of disputes, in and out of Japan. Our global service outside of Japan is supported by powerful assistance of foreign IP firms who are in cooperating relationships with us.
We are ready to establish strong partnerships with our clients and create intellectual properties together.

In our pursuit of “advancing together with our clients and creating a new business value together with our clients”, efforts of individual members are obviously important, and so is the power of organization with all of us united.

As much as it is important to encourage individual growth through amicable rivalry inside our firm, a potential of an organization, an assemblage of individuals, is limitless. A team can make the impossible for one person possible. And the best team achieves the best result.

Our slogan, “Break New Ground Together”, is our fundamental stance toward our clients, and at the same time, is the essence that lies inside our firm. We believe that this fundamental stance and essence will lead us to the best outcome for our clients.

The wide variety of experiences we have accumulated thus far and all the trust we have received from our clients are our priceless asset. We will build on this asset and unite to strive to better serve our clients.

And last but not least, I would like to say thank you to all our clients for their continued support and confidence in our firm.
