Mark Allen Cohen, senior intellectual property attache at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing, will join Jones Day‘s Beijing office as of counsel, focusing on intellectual property and technology transfer matters. During his time at the U.S. Embassy, Cohen, who also served as an attorney-adviser for the Office of International Relations of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, was involved in bilateral patent and trademark prosecution, Internet copyright enforcement, civil litigation technical assistance, anti-monopoly law, domain name dispute resolution, standards setting and technology transfer initiatives. He has worked closely with foreign governments and international organizations. “Having worked in intellectual property and Chinese law for nearly 25 years, Mark brings with him a wealth of experience to Jones Day’s China practice and our Beijing office,” said John Kao, partner-in-charge of Jones Day’s Beijing office. “We are confident Mark will make valuable contributions and advise our clients extensively on IP issues both here in China and abroad.” In addition to his experience and accomplishments in technology transfer and investment transaction issues, Cohen has worked on “Section 301″ cases, Section 337 matters and complex multinational intellectual property rights litigation. He co-managed the Guangzhou office of a U.S. law firm. Cohen has written and published extensively on Chinese intellectual property law, as well as on comparative law and legal developments in countries undergoing economic transition. He was the editor of Chinese Intellectual Property Law and Practice (Kluwer Law International 1999), co-editor of a book on China’s legal development and author of several articles on technology transfer to China. He previously served as a visiting Fulbright professor in the Republic of Slovenia and has written extensively on Slovenian law. He was the first lawyer to represent independent Slovenia before a U.S. government agency. Cohen holds a J.D. degree from Columbia University, an M.A. from the University of Wisconsin in Chinese Language and Literature and a B.A. from the State University of New York at Albany in Chinese Studies.
