Established in 1988 as one of the pioneering Guangdong IP firms, Jiaquan IP Law is unquestionably a top choice for both domestic and cross-border work. With over 480 patent professionals in-house – including one former judge and 18 former patent examiners – it has all the disciplines on lock, boasting a staggering 30,000 patent applications filed each year. Jiaqi Liang and Qun Yu are the names to note on the prosecution front. An electronic engineer by trade, Liang possesses deep telecommunications know-how, engendering the trust of Tencent on a variety of patent applications. Former Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) examiner Yu plays an important role in directing the firm’s invention patent drafting programme. On the litigation side, Jacky Yingqiang Tan has reached favourable outcomes in a string of invalidation disputes while arguing parallel infringement matters before the courts.
