Bronze - Individuals: enforcement and litigation
Intellectual property is a central plank at full-service Eiger, whose small but tight-knit team becomes a fan favourite among European and American companies. The outfit works closely with several magic circle practices, which has enabled it to pick up some of the most recognisable global brands, including Philip Morris International, Kering and Dolby. In recent years, it has received an increasing number of instructions from brands in the luxury, entertainment, technology and healthcare sectors. Of particular note is its affiliation with Chinese outfit Runyi Law, which significantly boosts its cross-strait litigation and regional regulatory compliance capabilities. Leading the line is partner John Eastwood and Heather Hsiao, who both have exceptional knowledge of IP law and legal developments in the region. Eastwood chairs the European Chamber of Commerce Taiwan Intellectual Property Rights Committee and has developed strong relationships with European clientele. Hsiao is an invaluable asset in brand protection and leads several IP projects for leading US and European luxury brands. Of counsel Eve Chen has more than a decade of experience of practising IP law in Taiwan and is currently working on trademark matters for one of the world’s largest fintech companies.
