知的財産業務、特に発明の現場と特許業務の橋渡しなど

  • 法務/コンプライアンス

経験内容

- 自らエンジニアとして、これまでに40件以上の特許出願を実施した他、特許担当としてその権利化プロセス(いわゆる中間処理)にも直接関与し、8割以上の特許査定を達成しました。
- 特許のライセンススキームや他社アライアンススキームなどの構築の経験もあります。
このように、研究開発と知的財産の両方の現場に深く関与しましたが、同じ技術を扱うとは言え、両者のモノの考え方には大きな隔たりがあるというのが率直な印象です。そこで、両者のギャップなどにお悩みをお持ちでしたら、何かしら助言できることもあろうかと存じます。
