Research and Development

For many years since the start of our firm in 1981, we have been providing legal services to domestic and overseas pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufactures, bio-venture companies, research institutes, contract research organizations (CROs) and various other clients. Our services include advising such clients on license agreements (patents, trademarks, etc.), research and development agreements, clinical research agreements and material transfer agreements.
Recently, the lawyers who have expert knowledge and experience provide legal advice on cutting-edge areas such as iPS cells, antibody drugs, regenerative medicine, gene therapy, biotechnology and telemedicine from the view of intellectual property law, personal information protection law and other laws specific to such areas. In addition, we have a contracted advisor who is a former government official of the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW) and the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA), which enables us to provide more practical and quality legal advice.
