IP Licensing & Exploitation - China

We help you profit from and protect your intellectual property rights

In China’s fast-changing business and legal environment, it is vital for intellectual property (IP) lawyers to understand the whole IP licensing process as well as the technology transfer and IP risk management process. With talented lawyers focusing on trademark, patent and copyright practice, our IP team has a deep understanding of these areas.

IP exploitation presents special challenges and the rewards must be effectively balanced with the risks. Effective contractual agreements help IP rights owners not only profit from their IP rights, but, if the agreements are properly drafted, also to protect their IP rights. Our lawyers have extensive experience of IP licensing agreements and assignment of valuable IP rights, as well as IP risk management. This enables you, as a client, to realise maximum value and effectively control your risks.

We act for multinational corporations as well as state-owed enterprises and private companies, advising them on:

  • Licensing of IP rights
  • Assignment of IP rights
  • Collaborative and sponsored research
  • IP audits
  • IP due diligence
  • IP risk management
  • IP strategic planning.
