China Council for the Promotion of International Trade Patent and Trademark Law Office (New York)

Background

CCPIT PATENT & TRADEMARK LAW OFFICE is the largest full-service intellectual property law firm in China with the longest history. We have over 470 staff including more than170 patent and trademark attorneys, among whom near 40 have lawyer's qualification. We also have more than 80 patent engineers. With our main office in Beijing, we also have offices in New York, Munich, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Guangzhou. We provide prosecution, litigation, transaction and consultation services relating to patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret, trade dress, domain name, anti-unfair competition and other intellectual property related matters.

I am excited to continue my work with CCPIT Patent and Trademark. The field of international patents, trademarks, and copyrights is a globally emerging field of law that will have a large impact on how companies "talk" with each other. I will work closely with the New York Branch executive, which means it is time to brush up on my Mandarin. Last summer I worked with business method patents; this summer I hope to work on the general aspects of PCTs (international patents). I also hope to dip into the field of trademarks and copyrights.
