IP specialist firm Amica Law LLC provides all-round services to a roster of clients that includes local leaders such as the National University of Singapore alongside Fortune 500s such as ExxonMobil. The group has been in the spotlight recently for its role in one of Singapore’s longest running current patent disputes; a team led by litigation practice head Jason Chan is acting for Element Six Technologies, a subsidiary of De Beers Group, in a landmark infringement case involving patents for synthetic diamond production. Young litigator Melvin Pang joins the ranks of the IAM Patent 1000 this year. “Melvin is quick to grasp the issues and pick up his client’s concerns and wishes. He is expert at providing legal advice that evaluates all the options, considers the business as well as the legal aspects, weighs up the pros and cons, and delivers a concise, reasoned recommendation.” From AI to semiconductors to biotech, top names in tech entrust portfolio matters to Amica’s sizable prosecution team. Director Winnie Tham plays a key role on that side of the business, drawing on her own technical background to obtain rights for life sciences innovators. Inventors love working with Edmund Kok: “It’s refreshing to have an IP attorney that brings a scientific-oriented angle and knows our lingo well.” Kok draws praise for his breadth of knowledge, thoroughness and skilful rebuttals against examiners.
