Our Company

Since our company was founded in 1981, we have specialized in searching Intellectual Property including patents, utility models, trademarks and designs. We have conducted from hardcopy gazette searches in Japan to patent database searches of the world. Most of our staff engaged in Intellectual Property matters has the ability to conduct searches. Our company has about 100 employees consisting of patent searchers and patent attorneys. Working in cooperation with the patent searchers and patent attorneys enables us to provide our clients with professional and high-quality service that includes opinions judged from the legal perspective. This strength differentiates our services from other patent search companies that merely offer the search result. We have also developed patent search software for CD-ROM patent gazette,"ATECT for Windows", in 1993 and software for analyzing patent,"Patent Map-kun", in 1998, that have been our vital means for patent searches and analysis. By having provided these various services and professional experience for more than 40 years, we have gained credibility and earned enormous recognition from our clients.
