I am a partner in our China Intellectual Property practice based in Hong Kong. Clients come to me for guidance on all aspects of brand and product design protection, enforcement and monetisation in China and regionally.

I specialise in brand protection and transactional IP matters, with a focus on trade mark, product design and copyright for clients in the consumer & retail, and media, entertainment & sports sectors. I regularly advise clients on all aspects of identification, protection, registration and enforcement of their IP rights. I also advise clients on legal issues relating to the commercialisation and internationalisation of IP/IT assets including management of IP portfolios, advising on licensing and franchising strategies across Asia.

I also regularly advise retail & consumer clients on regulatory compliance for online advertising and marketing regulations, as well as reviewing AdTech/MarTech agreements.
