November 2020 Luncheon: “Patent Infringement Litigation in Japan, Taiwan and China”

+ Thank you to those who attended the luncheon!
Have a look at our article to find out what was discussed!

We are pleased to invite you to our November Luncheon with Mr. Kenji Kuroda, Founding Partner and Representative Attorney of Kuroda Law Offices and Kuroda Patent Offices, who will deliver a speech titled “Patent Infringement Litigation in Japan, Taiwan and China”.

With the spread of globalization, there are more and more intellectual property disputes that go borderless. Once an intellectual property dispute arises, it is no longer confined to one country, but requires strategic planning across many different countries. As the representative attorney of a law firm with locations in Japan, Taiwan and China, Mr. Kuroda will talk about pertinent issues, such as a) how to detect acts of infringement, b) whether patent right holders should start litigation in Japan, Taiwan or China, c) preparations that should be made before a patent infringement suit begins, d) differences in systems for exercising rights in Japan, Taiwan and China, and e) points to win patent infringement litigation.

In order to guarantee the safety of our participants in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, a set of sanitary measures (detailed below) will be implemented. We thank you very much in advance for your kind understanding and cooperation, and look forward to welcoming you!
