Patent Infringement Lawsuits

In today's economy, it is vital that companies have the ability to protect their intellectual property.

Chinese Patent Law

Protecting intellectual property in China is often a concern for U.S. companies doing business in Asia. China’s rapidly growing economy provides enormous business opportunities for Chinese entrepreneurs and foreign companies. However, companies should perform due diligence in protecting their trade secrets and intellectual property. Although the Chinese government has well-established patent laws at the national level and works hard to stop IP theft, there are many local rules and regulations which may be complex to navigate for an unfamiliar company. With the proper guidance, our firm can help you prevent future complications and hold-ups to successfully manage your patents in China.

WHGC maintains a fully-staffed law office in Beijing to handle patent litigation and registration matters in China and has a close working alliance with Dacheng Law Offices, China’s largest law firm. We will help you bridge the gap between United States and Chinese patent law. To learn more about our patent law services, including Chinese patent law, contact our offices.
