The Patent Law Practice:
Yuasa and Hara provides support and representation in all aspects of patent administration.
We have an experienced group of patent attorneys specializing in a wide variety of technical fields including chemical, electric/electronic, mechanical, and highly advanced technologies.
We provide assistance at every step of the patent process, from preparation and prosecution of patent applications to post-grant proceedings and enforcement.
We combine the skills of our patent attorneys with those of our intellectual property lawyers and trademark attorneys, who are all well versed and experienced in obtaining, protecting and enforcing intellectual property rights. This allows us to offer comprehensive intellectual property services and help you protect intellectual property rights pertaining to your new ideas, including patents, copyrights, industrial design rights and trademarks.
We serve a diverse client base ranging from domestic and overseas individuals to corporations.
