Saitoh & Associates
1. History
“Saitoh & Associates” was founded in January, 1977. Over the past 30 years, we have specialized in the field of chemistry such as polymer chemistry, food chemistry, chemical machinery, as well as other fields such as semiconductor, machinery, materials, structure and food. Enjoying the high reputation gained from our clients, we have continuously pursued our way as a group of professionals to offer the best services in all aspects. We also recognized the importance of obtaining intellectual property rights in foreign countries from the very beginning of our history. With experienced staff members, our international section has successfully strengthened the long-time reliable business relationships with overseas patent attorneys in different countries.
2. Philosophy
Our basic philosophy is to become a best partner to each of our clients, who always answers the client individual needs promptly and correctly in a client-friendly manner.

The life cycle of an intellectual property right extends for a long period of time. On the other hand, an acquired intellectual property right might lose its significance without any chance of being utilized during its life time. Therefore, we are determined to extend our long-lasting professional assistance so that our clients would benefit from their intellectual property rights until the expiration dates thereof. Also, it is our rule to make every effort to procure intellectual property rights which are strong and competitive enough so that even if involved in any litigation, our clients could demonstrate the maximum effects and enjoy the advantages of their rights.
