Trademark Prosecution in Japan

The link below shows a flow chart of the procedure for obtaining trademark rights in the JPO.

The required materials for trademark registration in Japan are:

— The trademark that you want to register
— A Description of Classification (goods and/or services)
— Applicant information (name and address, in English)
— Priority document(s) (if any)

A power of attorney is not required unless the case is appealed or opposed in the future.

In determining the classification, we can advise you if you provide us with an example of the goods or services to be covered by the trademark.

Further, if there is a corresponding application in your country, please provide us with a copy of the description from the application in English.

Should you have any further questions on this matter, please feel free to contact us.
