ご挨拶

Thank you for visiting our website and hope we can be any help of you.

Ebata International Patent Firm is a Japanese firm found in 2011 by Koshi Ebata, the Japanese Patent Attorney in Kawasaki-shi, Kanagawa-ken, Japan, after he quitted from one of Japanese major electric appliance manufacturers.

The firm handles overall IP matters including filing applications of patent, utility model, design patent, and trade mark to Japan and foreign patent offices.

Practice of the firm spans many aspects of various IP laws including searching prior arts, obtaining, licensing, and enforcing IP rights, providing validity and infringement opinions and consultations about IP matters as well.

With his technically wide comprehension, Mr. Ebata handles many technical fields including IoT technologies with a few exceptions. In particular, he has expertise in mechanical and electrical technologies, for example, office machines, semiconductor instruments, digital and analog cameras, business models, production machines, building constructions, and civil engineering and constructions.

Applying extensive patent prosecution expertise as an IP manager during his career, he has acquired many dominant Japanese patents resulting in patent enforcement and winning an advantageous cross-license from a competitor.

He has also been so successful in US practice in the last sixteen years that about 95% of more than 250 his draft US patent applications have been allowed (see the website (Pair) of the U.S. PTO).

As a policy of the firm, our draft English specifications are reviewed in Japan by a native speaker or a proficient translator.

We commit to diligently work at reasonable cost with high quality and are looking forward to hearing from many countries.
