Filing of International Patent Applications with Ease

Eliminating Problems Caused by Mistranslations and Minimizing Fees to be Paid to Foreign Attorneys.
Have you ever experienced any problem of mistranslations due to some misunderstandings in the translation ?
Our firm has not only Japanese and Foreign technicians with high English level who are in charge of drafting English Specifications, but there are also Chinese patent attorneys and technicians with Chinese language as their mother tongue. These persons are responsible for drafting Chinese Specifications (translation cost is about the same as the local standard fee). Also, we actively study and provide our advice based on the legal systems and the practices of foreign countries, without totally relying on the foreign attorneys. Further, we aim to minimize the fees to be paid to the foreign attorneys by using the foreign technicians working in our office.
