Attorney-at-law in Japan, 2015 (currently non-practicing)

Hideto Kanda has been consistently involved in intellectual property law fields and has already represented clients in more than 40 IP litigation cases since he registered as an attorney at law. Especially in patent disputes, he tries to unravel the technical details as plainly as possible from the perspective that is not biased toward any particular field and to persuasively convey clients’ arguments to the judge.

On a day-to-day basis, he handles contract drafting and legal advice, and his strength lies in his ability to provide prompt services, with a commitment to reply within half a day of receiving a request.

In addition to his intellectual property practice, Mr. Kanda has been involved in a wide range of corporate matters, including employment issues, mergers and acquisitions, general corporate, personal information protection law and data protection, and advertising laws (e.g., Premiums and Misleading Representations Act, Pharmaceutical Law, etc.) to meet the needs of clients.
