I focus on the preparation of new applications and documents for our clients. I also work on projects for organizing patent paperwork and processes for our attorneys. Additionally, I am a liaison for communicating with our clients who live abroad.
I really enjoy learning new things. My work is so diversified—I am always engaged in new tasks. Patent law is exciting because we are able to see the concepts of new inventions and technologies before they exist in practice. I think it’s a very important and interesting field.
My greatest strength is that I am a caring person and work well with others. I recognize the prime importance of our clients, anticipate their future needs, and take responsibility for developing long-term relationships with them.
I love meeting new people because I can learn a lot from talking with them. Also, I make sure to show my appreciation to the people I meet in order to build relationships. It is important to me to observe the Japanese spirit of hospitality.
When you first start any new endeavor, it is important to approach it with a positive attitude. Having the right attitude prepares you better. It takes time to become proficient in work, but it is rewarding and the people are great.
Being detail-oriented is a huge requirement for this profession. The quality of our documentation can ultimately determine whether a patent is valid and enforceable.
I believe honesty and authenticity are essential—they are the principles that allow me to be comfortable with others and be myself. Honesty keeps one from being too complicated, and it’s important to know who you are.
I would love to bring official patent letters to inventors and celebrate with them!
