Bronze - Individuals: enforcement and litigation

In the game for more than five decades, general law firm Anderson Mōri & Tomotsune (AMT) offers outstanding end-to-end trademark services that attract both domestic and multinational clients. “We look for attorneys who communicate well, who put in the effort to understand the client’s business, and who resolve conflicts and problems effectively and efficiently. The lawyers at AMT satisfy those needs for us.” “They are quick and cost-effective.” Already one of the most diverse law firms in the region – its associate firms operate in Hong Kong and Jakarta, and its Singaporean branch recently forged a law alliance with DOP Law Corporation – AMT has recently launched a Foreign Joint Enterprise Scheme, which seeks to recruit the best international talent. Care for diversity extends to social initiatives – the firm frequently acts on behalf of marginalised communities on a pro bono basis, including in the trademark field. Spearheading the firm’s IP practice is Yasufumi Shiroyama, an enforcement whizz with a vast healthcare and pharmaceutical knowledge. On the non-contentious front, Takahiro Kitaguchi handles trademark filing, prosecution and clearance. “Takahiro is extremely capable and provides helpful analysis and creative problem-solving.”
