History

Philip Parker, a long-term resident of Japan, established P.J. Parker & Co.in 2001 as an overseas corporation with registered office in Japan. In 2005, we established a Japan-registered corporation, and moved our entire business to the Japanese corporation.

From 2001 to 2005, we helped high-tech startups from overseas enter the Japan market.

In 2006, we began brokering the sale and licensing of patents. Since then have steadily expanded our client base. Our clients include more than two thirds of the top Japanese high-tech companies, many of the top high-tech companies in Korea, China, and Taiwan, and major pharmaceutical and materials science companies.

Our firm is now the largest patent brokering business in North-East Asia. We have sold more than 3,000 patents.
