Bronze - Firms: prosecution

“M & Partners are phenomenal. Their attention to detail, proactiveness and high quality of advice never cease to impress. Their forward-thinking approach, broad depth of technical knowledge and practical strategic advice make them a very capable and recommendable law firm in the patent field.” Previously known as MORIWAKI IP, the IP boutique has since merged with another mid-sized practice. Now, with offices in Kyoto, Osaka and Tokyo, the outfit is perfectly positioned to offer its services to clientele all over Japan – and the world. Leading the compact team is president Masashi Moriwaki, an electronics specialist with expertise in both prosecution and litigation. Previously an in-house expert for Matsushita and Panasonic, he is commercially minded and easily understands the clients’ needs. He has served as a part-time technical adviser to the IP High Court for 15 years. On the prosecution front, he recently assisted biotechnology outfit Shinbiosis in filing international patent applications. “Moriwaki-san is very open minded and adapts well to his European clients’ mindset. He is always on top of the matters and is competent at discussing and solving problems.”
