Hongyi Jiang

Partner at LexField Law Offices

Hongyi Jiang is one of China’s premier patent litigators. He served with the policy and legislation division of the State Science and Technology Commission (formerly the Intellectual Property Rights Executive Conference Office of the State Council) from 1993 to 1996. During that period, he participated in several rounds of Sino-US IP negotiations. He subsequently founded his private practice in 1996 and has devoted most of his time to patent litigation-related matters.

Mr Jiang is head of LexField’s patent litigation team, which has handled numerous high-profile patent and other IP litigation cases, many of which have been selected by the Supreme People’s Court as the annual top 10 representative cases or 50 representative cases regarding IP litigation. In several of these cases Mr Jiang raised some crucial perspectives regarding the application of patent law, which became new judicial standards and have since been incorporated into relevant judicial interpretations.

Mr Jiang’s team is handling some landmark cases, including:

  • representing Qualcomm against Apple in a series of patent infringement litigation cases within China;
  • representing US-based Immersion against Apple in patent infringement cases; and
  • representing Huawei against Samsung in patent infringement cases.

Mr Jiang served for a long time as IP counsel for the China Food and Drug Administration, and is particularly experienced in pharmaceutical IP protection.

Mr Jiang has been ranked by Chambers Asia-Pacific as a leading individual in the field of IP litigation (Band 1 in 2017 and 2018), by Managing Intellectual Property as an IP Star and by the IAM Patent 1000 as an outstanding individual (highly recommended) since 2012
