Intellectual property rights portfolio (e.g. trademarks, patents, designs and copyrights) is one of the most valuable assets to many companies. The development of the IP regulatory landscape goes at a very rapid pace, which reflects the intensively changing technological and commercial reality. The rules governing IP are becoming increasingly complicated and internationalised. This imposes significant demands on companies’ ability to comply.

Our full-service IP practice covers trademarks and trade names, copyright, patents, designs, domain names, trade secrets and know-hows, as well as related marketing, franchising and unfair competition issues. We represent rightsholders before the state agencies and courts in local and cross-border IP disputes in relation to trademark infringements, parallel importation and counterfeiting issues.
