Trademark Portfolio Management

Trademark Portfolio Management (TPM) is proper, punctual, and strategic management of all legal processes related with a trademark/service-mark ranging from its registration and maintenance to complete protection in Japan. Thus, impeccable and efficient TPM services enable clients to keep the business related with its trademark secure and profitable always.

MARKS IP Law Firm can help manage deadlines, make filings, and counsel clients on how to best maintain strong trademark protection for your valuable assets in Japan and internationally.
