IP Licensing & Enforcement

As a market-leading IP group in China, we have represented clients in a wide range of high-profile and landmark IP cases in China and abroad. On the Chinese market, we not only help clients resolve IP disputes and safeguard their rights, we are also part of the national efforts to build a comprehensive IP protection system for the advancement of the national innovation strategy. On the international side, we have taken on numerous Belt and Road projects and advised multinational companies on strategic IP protection plans, which demonstrates our efforts to foster equal cooperation and fair competition in the global IP market.

 

Our IP group boasts an extensive bench of prominent individuals with both technical background and industrial experience, including former judges and CNIPA (i.e., China National Intellectual Property Administration) patent examiners who have many years’ trial or patent examination experience. The depth of our expertise enables us to provide comprehensive IP protection services to our clients and bolsters our leading position in numerous respectable rankings in the IP area both in China and at abroad for many consecutive years. Our firm was ranked Tier 1 law firm in intellectual property (both litigation and non-litigation) in the 2020 Legal 500 Asia Pacific rankings and a top tier law firm in the ALB China intellectual property rankings for many years in a row, including 2020. Our IP practice and IP lawyers have also been highly recommended by Chambers Asia-Pacific for years in succession. Moreover, many cases we have handled were selected into “Top 10 IP Cases in Chinese Courts” and “50 Typical Cases”.
