Intellectual Property

In the field of intellectual property our team is deeply experienced and has done innovative work for our clients. Practice head Hans Lee formerly led the intellectual property team at Nixon Peabody CWL and Darren FitzGerald was head of Asia Dispute Resolution at Bird & Bird.

Across our offices in Hong Kong and Sydney, and network of regional firms and contacts, we cover the full range of contentious and non-contentious intellectual property work.  Our practice runs from patent prosecution and intellectual property registration through commercialisation of intellectual property and enforcement.  We advise in the related areas of data privacy and domain names.  In Hong Kong we work closely with You Yi IP, a leading intellectual property services firm.  We work closely with a number of leading Mainland Chinese law firms.

Our corporate team advises on a broad range of transactional intellectual property such as assignments, licences and website agreements.

We are one of the few firms in Hong Kong and regionally that are regularly involved in substantial intellectual property arbitration.  We act for international brands in crossborder litigation.
