About Jerry Chou

Jerry Chou has worked as an attorney at law for nearly 17 years. He also has the same years of practice experience in the IP field. Such plentiful practice experience comes from his professional services in various cases involving trademark and copyright, such as administrative litigation for dispute over trademark, cases of civil infringement and criminal litigation regarding trademark, and litigation for copyright.

Since Mr. Chou became a legal practitioner, he has offered services to clients from many industries, such as healthcare, communication, electronics, network designing, papermaking, real estate, computer hardware and software designing.
