Dear Mr. Ryuka,

Please pardon my delay in responding to you e-mal. I have been trying to "catch up" on my "to do" list.

I very much enjoyed meeting you again and your colleagues at the AIPLA meeting and talking with you at the meeting about US litigation practice. I have found that my experience in this area of IP Law has helped me to better handle matters in the other IP Law practice areas I now handle.

I was very impressed by your initiative in getting a booth at the AIPLA meeting to introduce your firm and its practice to various IP practioners from the US, and indeed, around the world! Hopefully, your efforts at the AIPLA meeting worked out well for you.

Please let me know if you will have an opportunity to visit the US again. I would be happy to have you come to my firm for a visit.

please give my regards to your colleagues, Messrs. Izumi and Copley. I enjoyed meeting them as well.

If I can ever be of assistane to you or your colleagues (whether in US IP practice or otherwise), please do not hesitate to let me know. I would be happy to answer any US IP practice questions you may have in litigation, prosecution, licensing or otherwise.
