Lectures / Seminars

 

Welcome

 

Our firm has cultivated over many years rich and plentiful knowledge and experience of Intellectual Property. Via lectures, seminars and on-the-job training, we believe we are able to pass this knowledge and experience back to our clients and provide them with support that can rapidly strengthen their IP strategies.

Our Legal Department employs staff members whose various abilities enable us to deal with a wide range of legal fields: not only regarding the Trademark Law and Design Law, but also Copyright Law and Unfair Competition Prevention Law, etc. We are therefore capable of fulfilling various requests from clients who want practical lectures for their legal and IP teams, or who want a workshop to provide their R&D departments with the fundamental information they should know regarding trademarks, etc. We are constantly collecting up-to-date information on national and international IP and can provide lectures etc. on this material. We hope you will take advantage of our services.
