We offer services such as searches, advice of application strategy, responses to Office Actions, negotiations regarding trademarks and designs so that you can prevent the use of them from infringing third parties’ rights.
This service helps you with adopting names. We conduct multiple trademark searches with our comments from a legal and a non-legal (marketing) point of view. You can receive a brief legal report on multiple trademark candidates and advice on if the candidates are suitable for Japanese people.
