Intellectual Property


Our IP work generally falls into one of three categories: patent litigation, patent prosecution, and licensing.


Patent litigation

We have translated documents for Japanese clients involved in IP litigation in the US (prior art documents, correspondence with US attorneys, briefs and other court submissions), for parties litigating against Japanese companies in the US (discovery documents, prior art documents), and for foreign companies involved in IP litigation in Japan (briefs and other court submissions).


Patent prosecution

We assist patent attorneys in all stages of the patent prosecution process, including translation of specifications, correspondence with Japanese clients, prior art documents, information disclosure statements, and office actions.



Licensing, technical support, confidentiality agreements translated from Japanese to English and English to Japanese.
