Arent Fox is a go-to patent firm for Japanese companies with a US footprint. Our patent practice has its origins in a Japanese boutique firm that merged with Arent Fox nearly two decades ago. As a result, the “back office” at our firm includes dedicated staff for docketing, formalities, and other specialized patent prosecution functions, in addition to the standard secretarial support for our attorneys and agents. We have often secunded attorneys with our clients, so they can better understand their company and culture.
In addition to these services, we are a destination shop for Japanese companies in every area of intellectual property and corporate transactional work. When necessary, we collaborate with a select network of premier foreign counsel and connect clients with top experts throughout Japan.
Our team frequently advises clients in the automotive, technology, and telecommunications sectors.
