Taylor Wessing expands offering in China with the launch of Beijing Tailun IP Agency
Today we are announcing our expansion with the launch of an exclusive relationship with a specialist trade mark and IP agency in China.
With international law firms restricted from practicing Chinese law, a distinct legal entity has been established and permitted to provide a range of intellectual property related services by Chinese regulators.
Beijing Tailun IP Agency opened at the start of 2020 to pilot operations with selected Taylor Wessing clients before its official launch this week, and in consideration of lockdown measures from the COVID pandemic.
The agency is led by partner Thomas Pattloch, who was formerly the IP Officer of the EU Delegation to China, and launches with the appointment of five new lawyers.
