Needless to say, we selected the team as our IP counsel without even checking other law firms.” Backed by its unrivalled global network, the Singapore outfit, currently under the stewardship of the revered Andy Leck, is well positioned in the regional hub to lead on cross-border IP matters and execute multi-jurisdictional strategies with a uniquely localised mindset. Leck draws on his 28 years’ experience as an IP lawyer to deliver exceptional results on contentious and non-contentious matters deemed by many to be impossible. Working alongside him is US-qualified patent attorney Abe Sun, who has a flair for AI, fintech and computer software. One of his service users regards him as “one of the best patent practitioners he has worked with”. “He quickly gains the rapport with technical inventors and lawyers alike. His ability to explain complex legal matters in simple language, while providing relevant examples from different jurisdictions is simply unparalleled.” To complete the line-up is principal Ren Jun Lim, who dispenses strategically vital advice on the full spectrum of healthcare matters, possessing expansive knowledge on the overlap of IP and regulatory issues.
