China Market

China is a special jurisdiction that warrants particular attention, whether as a key global market or a location for the manufacturing activities of international companies.

AWA Asia comprises a bilingual and bicultural team of IP professionals (trademark lawyers, patent attorneys and IP strategists). Our international level service delivery comes with deep local knowledge, is business minded, pragmatic and tailored. We are an industry recognised and award-winning firm.

From our offices in Beijing and Hong Kong we cover all types of intellectual property rights including patents and trademarks. We provide a full-service offering including filing, prosecution, monitoring, watching, enforcement, dispute resolution and China-specific IP strategy. Our Beijing office is also a licensed trademark agency, enabling us to directly file China trademarks for our clients.

Our China, Hong Kong, Singapore and UK qualified attorneys at law all have extensive experience with managing trademark portfolios of all sizes across various industries and sectors.

Our China qualified patent attorneys cover contentious and non-contentious matters, assisting with freedom-to-operate analysis, competitor analysis, patent landscaping, offensive and defensive strategy work as well as invention extraction and disclosures.

Today, China is one of the largest IP markets in the world and is increasingly selected as a key venue for IP litigation by foreign and local entities alike. AWA Asia has a proven track-record in trademark and patent disputes.
