KYOWA PATENT AND LAW OFFICE is a comprehensive intellectual property firm with more than a hundred years of history. With its electrical, mechanical, chemical, trademark, design, and litigation departments, KYOWA provides high-quality legal services.

KYOWA is the first legal firm in Japan to have adopted an abstract noun as its name. The name KYOWA originates in the principle that "a firm is not the property of a specific person but is built through the harmonious cooperation of all its members". In line with this principle, at KYOWA, experienced veteran attorneys work along motivated young attorneys in a synergistic relationship.

Along with its know-how accumulated over its century-long existence, KYOWA is also proud of its "case-dedicated attorney" system wherein the patent attorney in charge of a case handles everything related to the case, prosecuting both in Japan and abroad, providing consultation, and assisting in the enforcement of IP rights while closely liaising with attorneys at law, as needed. As a result, our patent attorneys and attorneys at law acquire extensive experience and knowledge which is translated in consistently high-quality legal services for our clients.

KYOWA PATENT AND LAW OFFICE, while proud of its tradition, will continue its efforts to improve its service quality to fully meet the clients' expectations.
