For many U.S. companies, the Chinese market is seen as a key component of their growth strategy. However, if firms do not plan carefully when setting up operations or partnering in China, the risks can be significant. Although IP law on the books is extensive, IP rights enforcement in practice offers IP rights holders far less stringent protection of patents and licenses than they have in the United States and Europe. The fact is, if companies take their business to China, and even, in some cases, if they don't, their intellectual property could end up in the hands of potential competitors both in China and in major markets outside China.
In this seminar, our attorneys will discuss best practices for protecting IP rights in China as well as strategies for dealing with trade secret misappropriation in China.
