A former Japanese judge and litigator, Shuzo Maruyama, focuses his practice on US patent litigation involving leading Japanese corporations. 

Based on his ten-year trial experience together with his three-year intensive study in a prominent US law school (where he obtained his J.D.), he offers Japanese companies crucial insight and invaluable advice with regard to cross-border patent cases. Most recently, he secured a complete victory on behalf of major Japanese automotive companies in a multi-patent, multi-respondent ITC case with corresponding district court litigation. 

He also has particular experience in a wide range of complex commercial, civil, administrative litigation and licensing, and cross-border trademark cases.
