I have a wealth of experience working with businesses at the cutting edge of research and technology for which intellectual property is of primary importance. I have acted for many high profile technology companies, advising on a broad range of legal issues from obtaining protection for new technology, resolving disputes, and where necessary, enforcing rights through litigation and mediation. My litigation experience has touched upon a wide variety of technologies, including telecommunications, electronics, semiconductors, software, medical devices and mechanical technologies. I also advise on protection and enforcement of other IP rights, including trademark, IC layout design and copyright.Prior to joining Bird & Bird, I practiced at a leading Chinese firm as a patent attorney and attorney-at-law over 10 years. I worked in both Beijing and Hong Kong for over 10 years, and I am currently based in Hong Kong.As a native Mandarin speaker, I am also fluent in English and Cantonese.
