KUBOTA was founded in 2015 by ex-Hogan Lovells’ partner, Eiichiro Kubota. The original Kubota firm was founded in 1994 and many of the firm’s team members have survived the merger with Hogan Lovells to join the newly founded firm. Although KUBOTA is a relatively small boutique firm with around 20 people, it is well known for the quality of its work. The firm has attracted high-end clients, both domestic and foreign, in all areas of their work which include patent litigation, trademark litigation, trademark prosecution, anti-counterfeiting and other enforcement and prosecution matters. One of the unique features of KUBOTA is the good knowledge of industry and technology which makes the communication with clients smooth and presentations before the Courts and the Patent Office persuasive. Another feature of the firm would be language skills and understanding of different cultures which were brought in from experiences with an international firm.
