Intellectual Property rights

01. About

China is a very dynamic market for intellectual property generation since it has shifted from the factory of world to the lab of the world.

Drafting and negotiating commercial contracts effectively often involve a solid knowledge in intellectual property rights especially as we are dealing with industrial, retail and wholesale and tech providers.

Protect your Intellectual property:
With the size of the Chinese market shares growing in the total business of our clients, enhancing the protection of local IPs has become a key tool to ensure the protection of the value of our clients at global level. We help define and implement the best IP strategy for China to protect the growth and value of your business.
Registration of intellectual property before entering the Chinese market is a must. The protection of Intellectual property rights is a challenge to prevent counterfeiting but also to make sure that a competitor will not prevent from operating on the market. By designing the right IP strategy, we help our clients to avoid costly IP wars on the Chinese market. Defining your intellectual property strategy in China is a necessity to enter some markets such as online distribution or to structure the repatriation of IP royalties from China to overseas.
Proof of ownership of IP rights will be necessary to secure market access and enter partnerships with quality Chinese distributors. Third party IP rights squatting is still an active practice in China. We can help foreign companies to protect their IP rights locally before starting to do business locally.
