What the team is known for
This content is provided by Hogan Lovells.
We have one of the largest IP practices in Greater China with over 50 IP practitioners . Through our offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong and our associated firm Hogan Lovells Fidelity we are able to offer both local and international advice.
We have always been at the forefront of developments in China. We have taken a step further and taken advantage of rules allowing Chinese and foreign law firms to establish an association in the Shanghai Free Trade Zone ("Shanghai FTZ") , to set up the association which is branded under "Hogan Lovells Office". With it, Hogan Lovells has now become the 3rd foreign law firms in China approved by Chinese government to form an association with a Chinese law firm. This new association allows us –in contrast to most other international law firms- to offer direct domestic Chinese legal advice and litigation services on top of our integrated international legal services. We have had six full time IP fee earners join Hogan Lovells Fidelity. They have started to handle a number of very high-level litigation matters in cooperation with our existing Hogan Lovells IP team.
We act on the matters that are most important to our clients, and take on some of the most difficult matters setting precedents in the field of IP in Hong Kong and China. We are trusted with major brand portfolios because it allows us to understand our clients businesses and brands so that when litigation is required we can fight for their IP rights.
