HEA provides high quality, innovative,
and cost-effective solutions.

Hubbs, Enatsky & Auito (HEA) is a full-service intellectual property law firm delivering high-quality and cost-effective solutions to clients in the United States, Japan, and around the globe. Our attorneys bring years of experience as counsel from top U.S. law firms, Benrishi (effectively IP attorneys) from Japanese law firms, and patent examiners from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and the Japanese Patent Office. We are one of few intellectual property firms in the world with fully operational offices in the United States and Japan, enabling us to respond to your needs in a timely and effective manner.

At HEA, we understand that legal costs are more important than ever. That is why our firm was founded on the principle of providing high-quality legal services at reasonable cost. We remain committed to this principle by providing flexible services and tailored billing procedures.

HEA’s attorneys and staff are fluent in English and Japanese and experienced in all areas of intellectual property law, including patent drafting, prosecution, opinion drafting, post-grant practice, trademarks, licensing, and litigation.

HEA’s U.S. office is in Northern Virginia, just minutes from the USPTO, the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC), and the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC). This allows us to easily interact with patent examiners in person when the need arises and to more conveniently serve as litigation counsel at the Patent Trial and Appeals Board (PTAB), ITC, and CAFC.

HEA’s Japan office is in Kobe, a central location that allows us to work closely with our network of Japanese Patent Attorneys and facilitate closer relationships with clients throughout Asia. Our Japan office includes a team of patent professionals who are fluent in Japanese and can communicate effectively with clients on case-specific matters and the latest developments in legislation and litigation.
