About this blog

Nice to meet you. My name is Miwa Yoshida, a Japanese patent attorney.

I have been involved in various forms of work in the IP industry from 2007 until now. I opened my own firm in January 2022 and have been involved in IP work for a drug discovery start-up company since April of the same year.

In this blog,

  • FoodTech (FoodTech technology, related intellectual property information, etc.)
  • IPNews (foreign IP and other IP information, health tech and other technology information, etc.)
  • My business(about legal study, IP industry, etc.)
  • Blog (current affairs, learning foreign languages as my life’s work, health topics, etc.)

I am writing primarily about the above themes.

In particular, I have recently been writing articles related to FoodTech, especially as it relates to intellectual property.

Please do not hesitate to contact me.

About Spot Intellectual Property Consultation Service

  • However, although it is not mentioned in the above website, it would be extremely difficult for a layperson to handle all of these matters without a representative. On the other hand, there are certainly people who are able to do some of these things on their own. (We also have a collection of tips for those who can do it on their own. Japanese text only, paid article)
