As one of the first members of Sonoda & Kobayashi, Ms. Tochino has continued to actively help build and expand the firm. She developed a broad range of skills in different positions, from her time as an English-to-Japanese translator to her role as a paralegal and expert in trademarks and designs. Keen on delivering the best results for our clients with an eye toward improving internal efficiency and satisfaction, she developed a workflow and quality control system at our firm early on. Currently serving as a director, Ms. Tochino coordinates and supervises the general workflow of the firm, and more specifically oversees the engineer, IT, and administrative departments. She also advises clients on the prosecution and defense of trademark and design rights in Japan.
