Founding Partner at Twelve Tables Law Firm
Bob Jin has rich trial experience in patent litigation. His background in physics, combined with over 10 years of patent litigation experience and many years of patent prosecution experience, means that he is skilled at handling patent cases that involve high-technology elements. Mr Jin has handled over 100 complex patent litigation cases, as well as patent invalidation cases, for clients comprising multinational technical giants and unicorn companies.
From 2017 to 2019, he represented Qualcomm against Apple in several patent infringement cases before multiple Chinese courts; among them, one second-instance case was listed among the annual top cases of the Supreme People’s Court in 2018. In 2012 he won a re-trial patent infringement case before the Supreme Court that was listed in the “2013 annual IP Report of the Supreme Court”. The decision’s rationale was later codified as one article of the Judicial Interpretation on Several Issues Concerning the Application of Law on Patent Infringement (II) issued by the Supreme Court.
Mr Jin has previously practised at King & Wood Mallesons and LexField. In early 2019 he co-founded Twelve Tables Law Firm with other partners specialising in patent, trademark and antitrust litigation. The firm’s clients range from Fortune 500 companies and leading national companies to universities and top-tier foreign law firms.
Mr Jin is a member of the China Bar and admitted to practise before the China Intellectual Property Office.
