SIPS has once again been recognized by World Trademark Review 1000, with the highest number of ranked individuals in their “China: foreign” chapter in the 2020 guide.
Excerpt from World Trademark Review:
Boasting the highest number of ranked individuals in the China: foreign chapter, SIPS is an expert in Chinese trademark matters, whether in China, Hong Kong or Taiwan. Thriving in both the contentious and non-contentious space, the firm tends to a large amount of IP enforcement work in South China, given that it is one of the few foreign outfits with an in-house investigations team. “They are some of the leading professionals in the anti-counterfeiting field – they know the industry inside and out, obtaining results that very few do because they think outside the box.”
The ensemble also maintains key relationships with local counsel in various parts of China to work with and consult on local practice, which multinationals fully appreciate. “They know our IP portfolio and provide practical advice and a thorough analysis on how our trademarks can help us get the results we need and what protection we need to combat problems. Overall, they are cool, fun guys to work with.”
The side is singled out for the astuteness with which it advises US companies doing business in China on a wide variety of issues; as well as for the fact that lawyers there are fluent in English and Mandarin Chinese. “I value their honesty, integrity and very transparent way of working. They view themselves as an extension of the brand that they represent; they are completely aligned on goals and provide solutions to achieve them while staying within the budget.”
