Bronze - Firms: prosecution and strategy

Young and compact, Borders IP has nevertheless managed to garner a strong client base with its practical, flexible solutions on both sides of the contentious/non-contentious divide. Having cut his teeth on IP practice at SOEI IP, founder Kumpei Kogure is as good as it gets when it comes to non-contentious matters. Clients shower him with praise and recommend him to others in their networks without hesitation. “I have a deep respect and trust in the firm’s capabilities. I even recommended Mr Kogure to one of my institutional US clients and they were pleased with the service.” Senior partner Takao Fukui, whose main focus is prosecution, gets similar praise and deserves a mention, too. “I was deeply impressed by their fluency in communication, dedication and keen understanding of IP law.” “Mr Kogure’s and Mr Fukui’s diligence, responsiveness and ingenuity are second to none.”
