The Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton Intellectual Property Agency (Beijing) Co., Ltd (the Kilpatrick Townsend IP Agency) provides integrated services to clients in need of advice and service regarding trademarks and related needs in China. The Agency is led by Christopher Woods, who is a Hong Kong, UK and US licensed attorney, and the practice operations in Beijing are managed by Qunfan Chen, a highly experienced senior trademark agent. Chris has practiced trademark law on behalf of US and European clients in the US and Asia for the past three decades and leads the multilingual, multi-qualified China brands team that operates out of Beijing, Shanghai, New York, Seattle and Atlanta. All of the team members have focused their entire careers on protecting and enforcing the trademarks of our clients in the US and in Asia generally, and particularly in China. As a result, we bring a level of sophistication and experience to protecting and enforcing our client’s trademarks in the region that we believe is unparalleled.
The Kilpatrick Townsend IP Agency is locally licensed and qualified under Chinese laws and regulations to carry out services directly for and on behalf of its clients in the following areas:
- Trademark filing and prosecution through to registration
- Oppositions and cancellation actions in the China Trademark Office and Trademark Review and Adjudication Board
- Appeals of trademark-related matters in the IP courts
- Advice regarding the development and management of trademark portfolios
- Copyright registration, strategy and related issues
- IP Enforcement matters involving Chinese authorities and agencies and litigation management and support
- Internet and domain name registration and dispute issues
- Trade secret protection and litigation support
- Licensing of intellectual property rights and related commercial agreements
- Advice regarding patent prosecution, litigation strategy and litigation issues
Given our team’s presence and depth of experience in China, there are few aspects of trademark practice relating to the region that our team hasn’t dealt with on numerous occasions. We regularly work with clients to develop China-specific filing and enforcement strategies, including audits and defensive filing programs to ensure all forms of a client’s major brands and sub-brands are fully protected through recovery programs and broad and robust registrations. The team is also heavily engaged in enforcement work in the region where our presence and understanding of Asian and Chinese cultures and languages enables us to handle enforcement issues in a responsive yet truly cost effective and efficient manner.

While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.
