The Patent 1000 focuses exclusively on patent practice and has firmly established itself as the definitive 'go-to' resource for those seeking world-class legal patent expertise.
Bronze - Individuals: litigation
Very few IP establishments in China can compete with the breadth and depth of the patent practice at CCPIT Patent & Trademark Law Office. Comfortably sitting in the gold tier alongside other reputable prosecution shops, the group has both the technical and legal chops to get the job done and to the highest standard. With offices in Beijing, New York, Silicon Valley, Tokyo, Munich, Madrid, Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Shanghai, it has delighted many domestic and international clients alike. Vice president Chuanhong Long shrewdly guides patent applications through the CNIPA gauntlet. A much sought-after chemical expert in his own right, he has also been entrusted with invalidation, enforcement and licensing matters. Despite its unparalleled prowess on the prosecution front, CCPIT’s extensive repertoire of knowledge also makes it a formidable force in the litigation space – it has won mandates from illustrious overseas brands including Apple and Canon. Making their mark are Weijie Tang and Jianzhong Kang, both of whom were previously trained in US law firms. Tang focuses on matters arising from pharmaceutical companies, whereas Kang’s practice effortlessly traverses the contentious/non-contentious divide.
