Jones Day Launches IP Agency in China
The Asian Lawyer
Jones Day has launched an intellectual property agency to register trademarks in China.
The firm has transferred four of its staff, including associates and trademark specialists, to the the Jones Day Intellectual Property Agency (Beijing) Co. Ltd. in Beijing. It has hired one new staff member for the team.
These agencies can file applications with China Trademark Office and also handle trademark-related matters before Chinas Trademark Review and Adjudication Board and Chinese customs service. Such IP agencies are barred from handling patent-related matters.
Beijing partner Horace Lam says creating the new agency will allow another layer of direct support to clients facing trademark infringement or counterfeiting issues in China.
