Mr. Tanaka is from Osaka-Shi, Japan and earned a bachelor’s degree in law from the University of Tokyo. He also earned an LL.M. from Osaka Institute of Technology, specializing in intellectual property. Currently Mr. Tanaka is a partner at Nakanoshima Chao Law Office. He hopes to expand his law firm into an international law and patent office.
