Legal 500 Leading Firm 2023 HFL

The Legal 500 Leading Firm 2023 – HongFangLaw

HongFangLaw is delighted to share with all colleagues and clients that the firm has been ranked as a Leading Firm in the Legal 500 2023 on the APAC rankings for our practice area in Intellectual Property Protection, for the second year in a row.

Legal 500 is the largest independent international survey of the legal market and is recognized as the authoritative guide to law firms in the world. An annual publication, achieving rankings in the directory, is increasingly competitive and based on research that includes client feedback as well as detailed submissions from law firms.

As always, we have continued working towards international recognition for our great team. With our twenty years of experience in intellectual property protection, we are steadily pursuing the best service practice to protect our client’s intellectual property portfolios. We are glad to have been recognized by Legal 500 again as one of the leading firms in China.

The year 2022 was a successful and busy period for the team, and we had several successful litigations and significant enforcement cases, especially in the fields of trademark and copyright, as well as anti-counterfeiting enforcement.

Furthermore, we had a change in leadership, with the addition of 5 new partners, promoted from our senior counsel team. This has increased our productivity and will surely benefit our clients and colleagues greatly moving forward.

Legal 500 has also recognized our partners Eric Su and Xu Zhang as recommended lawyers and has given an honorable mention to our other partners Kevin Xu, Bob Zhang, and Shirley Lin as “key lawyers”.

As we previously shared in April and May, this year, a few of our cases have been selected as part of the top practices in litigation and enforcement in Chinese courts and QBPC, it is always encouraging to see our practice become better with time, and we feel rewarded in seeing how also international institutions recognize HongFangLaw as one of the leading firms in China.

This will be a new stepping stone for our amazing team, and we will always work towards performing a better service for our clients and ensuring that their rights are protected in the Chinese market environment.
