Our Workforce

Our patent attorneys are knowledgeable about international law, as well as Japanese law, and they are members of both national and international law and intellectual property associations, including the Japan Patent Attorneys Association, APAA, AIPPI, and LES. In addition, most of our staff is fluent in English, which empowers them to communicate successfully with other countries through the medium of English.
Our Expertise
     As agents, we have long been involved in the development and careful cultivation of inventions. As patent attorneys, we have also been involved for many years in the process of moving an idea along to a patented actuality. Over time, we have accumulated the vast expertise and experience that enables us to extract yet more successful ideas through serious discussions with inventors. Our capabilities for both formulating ideas and shepherding them into successful inventions are well utilized in all the work we do at Haruka such as preparing a better response to the Office Action. Moreover, we have the extensive patent experience, gained through years of application, consultation and litigation, necessary for proposing practical, realistic solutions to minimize the risks of patent infringement upon other companies' patents.
Cooperative Network with Overseas Agents
     Haruka works with many agents abroad, in a network long established by the partners that extends not only to Asia, the United States and Europe, but ranges worldwide. We maintain a close cooperative relationship between these agents around the globe and ourselves, cultivated through daily exchange of information. We can provide prompt services to our clients anywhere in the world through a simple international telephone call. This network makes it possible for Haruka to offer you high-quality intellectual property services on a global level.
