In response to the Japanese government's declaration of a state of emergency, we are adjusting our operations accordingly.

At this point, we are currently moving most of our patent attorneys and staff in our main Osaka office to remote telework.
Our Tokyo office has already been transitioned to telework, whereas our Hiroshima office is doing business as usual.

Overall, we can continue to meet the needs of our clients without interruption.
Each of us can be reached by email though some at home may not be reached by phone.

We would appreciate your understanding and will remain focused on our clients to maintain our standards for prompt, high quality services during this difficult time.

APAA is a member of 24 countries, including Asia and Oceania, with a total membership of over 2000.
A large number of representatives from Europe and the United States also participated in the meeting, because they also allowed patent attorneys outside Asia to participate as observers.
From our office, Fukumoto, Okazawa, Hino, and Okubo participated and had about 25 meetings with overseas representatives.
