Pace-Tanabe Intellectual Property Law strives to help its clients realize and then maximize the potential value of their intellectual property. Specializing in the fields of life sciences and biotechnology, we have provided top-notch patent consultation services for researchers and businesses on the leading edge.

Moreover, we provide continuous support extending even from the experimental stage of a new technology so that our clients can ultimately enjoy the benefits of strong, effective intellectual property rights.


1. International Support Services for Patents in the Fields of Life Sciences and Biotech

We provide professional services in the fields of life sciences and biotechnology, encompassing the wide scope of genomics and pharmaceuticals to agricultural chemistry, food science, and environmental science.

Especially for overseas clients who wish to file a Japanese patent application, we exert our utmost efforts to secure broader and stronger patent rights in Japan. Upon preparing the Japanese translation of a specification to be submitted to the JPO, we evaluate the invention intensively and extensively so that the translation can perfectly represent the original specification.

2. Discovering Potential Intellectual Property

Through close cooperation with our innovative clients at universities, research institutes, and corporations, we have discovered the potential of their intellectual property through in-depth investigation of experimental data. We have seen such intellectual property grow even stronger through our insightful technical advice related to research planning and experimental design.

3. Comprehensive Intellectual Property Services

Our activities embrace a wide spectrum of intellectual property services, including high-end intellectual property consultation, patent and non-patent literature search, and provision of opinions related to prior art and patentability. Please feel free to contact us for more information.
