Contrary to patent applications, utility model applications are registered without examinations regarding novelty and inventive step. Utility model applications can be registered within 2-3 months. These features provide different advantages than patent applications. Please contact us if you have any questions about the utility model system.
We have number of experiences of filing trademark applications with the Japan Patent Office, both for domestic and foreign clients. We can also handle your International Registrations of Marks in Japan and respond to office actions from the Japan Patent Office.
Design practice is very local, for example, in the requirements of drawings, scope of allowable amendments, and protection of display designs. We can handle design applications due to our good understanding and experience of the Design system.
We can provide services for translation, search, and consultancy for asserting your IPR.
