Bronze - Firms: enforcement and litigation
Soon to be merged with Broad & Bright Law Firm, full-service AnJie never disappoints its patrons when it comes to brand protection. The core team members – consisting of former senior judges, former senior examiners and IP litigators – are deeply trusted by some of the most recognisable brands in China for their sheer experience and qualification. The quintessence of this is Nick (Qinghui) Liu, who was a former senior IP judge in Beijing High People’s Court and with a doctorate in law. He had handled more than 2,000 IP-relate cases and has passed precedent-setting patent and trademark judgments during the course of his career. His understanding of trademark law jurisprudence and practical knowledge on the bench gives him an edge over many litigators on the market. “It is our honour to work with Mr Liu’s IP team. They are always customer-driven and proven to be the experts in China’s IP landscape.” An attestation of his outstanding dispute resolution capability, Liu has assisted Tencent in two separate trademark infringement and unfair competition litigation matters. The China tech giant was subsequently awarded a total of Rmb80 million thanks to his tenacious effort.
