Our firm was founded in 1927 by Bunzo TAKINO, a Doctor of Laws and Patent Attorney.


Since its founding, the firm has specialized in intellectual property and has accumulated experiences not only in domestic and foreign patent, design, and trademark applications and prosecutions but also in post-patent infringement litigation, licensing agreements, and expert opinion services. 

The firm has also provided comprehensive backup services for our clients' international IP activities through our close network of overseas lawyers.


Under globalization, IP strategies such as the protection and utilization of IP rights are becoming increasingly crucial for creating innovation and social development. 

As a group of intellectual property specialists, we are committed to further improving our services and providing our clients with tailor-made IP services based on our long years of experience since our establishment.


We sincerely appreciate your continued patronage and look forward to your continued support.
