EIP today announced the opening of a new representative office in Japan.
Heading up the EIP representative office in Tokyo will be senior associate and UK and European Patent Attorney, Stephen Scott. Stephen is a fluent Japanese speaker and spent two years working in Japan with Japanese multinational companies, prior to joining EIP.
Stephen will continue to focus on his current clients, but will also work on strengthening ties with EIP’s network of Japanese patent, trademark and law firms and Japanese clients.
Chris Price, partner, commented: “We believe that the formal presence of EIP in the east will significantly improve the firm’s ties with Japanese firms and in turn strengthen our capabilities on a global scale, as well as providing a local point of contact for our clients in Japan.”
