Intellectual Property (IP) rights are often among your most valuable assets. Fortunately the IP environment in China has improved significantly over the past decade. However, this is a complex area. Preparation and the right approach is critical. Most UK law firms lack specialised China IP protection expertise or charge fees beyond the means of many SMEs, while China-based law offices are hard to deal with due to time and cultural differences, and tend to be China-myopic. Chopstick Club’s ‘Intellectual Property’ service offers a solution. Put simply, we work with a UK-based partner, registered with the UK Law Society and recognised as a leader in their field, exclusively specialized in international IP with deep experience of acting for clients in China. They are able to help you address your needs from the UK while having strong capabilities in place to then execute on-the-ground in China as well as other jurisdictions around the world.
