Patent & Design application
Once you complete a patent application, an utility model application or a design application with the patent authority in your station, you can apply the same invention or design for a patent/design registration by Japan Patent Office (JPO) claiming the convention priority within one (1) year from the date of your original application in your station.
Applying for the patent or the design registration by JPO, you’re suggested to be in touch with your patent attorney or with us by the ninth (9th) month after the date of your original application.
And once you complete an international application in your station under Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) designating Japan (JP) as one of the designated countries, you can proceed to the national phase for a patent by JPO within thirty (30) months from the priority date.
Proceeding to the national phase in Japan, you’re suggested to be in touch with your patent attorney or with us by the month of three (3) months prior to the due date.
Trade Mark application
Once you start any business in Japan for goods and/or services with your nice trade mark, you’ll have a chance to make the trade mark registered by JPO. You’re suggested to be in touch with us as soon as you’re interested in an application of trade mark to be used for those goods and/or services.
