Dr Frederick Ch'en is a dual-qualified solicitor (England & Wales) and US attorney-at-law (California), US patent attorney and UK Chartered
Biologist with a First Class Honours degree in Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry, and a doctorate in Medical Sciences, both from Oxford
University. He has wide experience of advising on contentious and non-contentious intellectual property (IP) matters, including patent and
trademark disputes, IP aspects of transactions (M&A, private equity, and corporate finance), as well as licensing and other non-contentious and
advisory work, especially in life sciences. His particular focus is multi-jurisdictional patent litigation, which also allows him to assist more
pragmatically on IP licensing and IP aspects of transactions. As a former scientist, Frederick brings technical insight into clients' disputes or
transactions coupled with cross-border perspectives that stem from having been raised in four different cultures. He has been recognised as a leading practitioner for many years by various publications. Frederick speaks Japanese and is a "Gaikokuho Jimu Bengoshi" (registered foreign
lawyer) in Japan.
