Media and Technology-Focused Law Firm Adds Two Rising Stars in IP

We have always prided ourselves on leveraging our unique combination of capabilities that makes us the ideal partner for US-Japanese business ventures.”
— David B. Hoppe
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 11, 2022 / -- Gamma Law, a premier specialty law firm supporting clients involved in high-growth and emerging media and technology sectors, today announced two additions to its trans-Pacific intellectual team. Gamma Law’s global practice serves Japanese media and technology companies doing business in the United States and US companies.

The new members joining the established team of seasoned lawyers are Yusuke Hisashi, of counsel and Koji Tomimoto, on secondment from a leading Japanese firm.

Hisashi is an intellectual property attorney experienced in media and technology transactions, having served in Japan’s Patent and Intellectual Property Right Protection offices.

“Yusuke brings a comprehensive understanding of US and Japanese business cultures and contracts, negotiation, and licensing customs,” noted Gamma Law Managing Partner David B. Hoppe. “His work as an independent counsel and as an in-house legal consultant for a major entertainment streaming service in Tokyo gives him a firm understanding of content licensing, contracts, acquisitions and negotiations. That work and his experience with investment firms, technology service providers and government agencies will prove invaluable as a member of the Gamma Law team.”

Hisashi’s previous work within the Japanese civil service includes managing counterfeiting cases, resolving trademark disputes and implementing protections against counterfeit Japanese products.

He is a graduate of the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University.

Tomimoto, who comes to Gamma Law on secondment from his position as an associate with the international law firm Kitahama Partners in Osaka, also practices primarily in the area of intellectual property, venture capital, mergers and acquisitions, and international business. He has represented clients in dispute resolutions, negotiations, and agreement due diligence.

He earned his law degree from Kyoto University.

“We are fortunate to welcome Yusuke and Koji and are excited about the skills they bring to Gamma Law,” Hoppe said. “We have always prided ourselves on leveraging our unique combination of capabilities that makes us the ideal partner for US-Japanese business ventures. Yusuke and Koji’s addition only raises the level of hands-on legal counsel we can deliver for a select group of clients.”
