Han Kun and multiple partners honored in 2022 China Intellectual Property & Antitrust Services Capability Rankings
Recently, the 2022 China Intellectual Property & Science and Innovation Forum was successfully held in Beijing. This year's forum, themed "Intellectual Property: A Pillar of China's National Security", was steered by senior science and engineering academicians, with attendees that included government officials, experts in various fields, and representatives of corporate giants in the automobile, chip, and new energy industries. Han Kun partner Rong CHEN was invited by the forum to make a speech on "trademark protection in overseas business expansion and strategies for responding to abnormal trademark applications".
The forum officially unveiled the 2022 China Intellectual Property & Antitrust Services Capability Rankings, which is a result of recommendations, thorough research, and verifications among different parties in the IP field. Han Kun was recognized as one of the "Top 25 China IP & Antitrust Domestic Law Firms", owing to the firm's stellar service capabilities and reputation in the IP field. Also, Han Kun partners Lili WU, Yan WANG, Rui LUO, and Rong CHEN were respectively honored among the "Top Barristers of the Year", "Top 10 Antitrust Lawyers", "Top 10 Patent Lawyers", and "Top 10 Trademark Lawyers".
The research project for China Intellectual Property & Antitrust Services Capability Rankings was established by the Power-nation Institute platform. The editorial team carried out across-the-board research of law firms, IP agencies, and practicing lawyers and agents, verified leading cases published by the Supreme People's Court, Beijing High Court, Beijing IP Court, Shanghai IP Court, Guangzhou IP Court, and the CNIPA, and evaluated submissions from law firms, IP agencies, and practicing lawyers and agents. A preliminary list was developed from a ranking of those candidates according to the IP and antitrust services capability standards. The preliminary list was then discussed, reviewed and evaluated by an expert panel in accordance with law to determine the final list of winners.
