Who We Are

Dating back to late 1990s, when a group of passionate people became colleagues at an international IP firm, they did not realize that sooner or later they could become reliable partners to each other, jointly devoting themselves to the intellectual property legal practice, and nowadays, the partnership has become bigger and firmer after years’ experience.

We keep our commitment to clients and stakeholders as the top priority, and with the high standard service quality, we devote ourselves to the best tailor-made solutions to clients.

We practice through our networking entities integrated with litigation, contentious solutions and non-litigation cases, from offices in Shanghai, Guangzhou and Beijing.

We are proud of practicing in IP industry, with our professionalism and passion.
