The WTR 1000 focuses exclusively on trademark practice and has firmly established itself as the definitive 'go-to' resource for those seeking world-class legal trademark expertise
Silver - Individuals: prosecution and strategy
Founded in 1952 as a full-service law firm and remodelled into an IP specialist outfit in 1974, Tai E International Patent & Law Office has an almost-unrivalled depth of experience and expertise in the field of IP rights. The group keeps abreast of updates to local and international developments in intellectual property and ensures that all clients are well informed. Mattel, Giorgio Armani and Charriol are some of the household names that have sought out its managing partner Fred Chi-Tai Yen. With more than 30 years of experience as an IP attorney, he is widely respected on the market. Two new names in WTR 1000 this year are Hogan Chen and Monica Shen, whose strength lies in the trademark prosecution. They have both worked closely with Yen on multiple trademark matters. Alongside them on the prosecution front is Amanda Hung, who dispenses top-notch advice on opposition matters and successfully revoked the registration of an opposed mark for a well-known Italian fashion brand. Henry Guei is a seasoned IP litigator and oversees the litigation group. He has been entrusted by Abercrombie & Fitch to cooperate with local law enforcement units to supervise customs seizure actions.
