Chang Tsi & Partners has won “Deal of the Year” Award from China Business Law Journal for its work on MK Brand Trademark Infringement Dispute. This is a representative case in which a small local company in Guangdong sued a multinational company for infringement of trademark rights and demanded huge compensation. As the editorial team commented, Chang Tsi & Partners did not compromise, and “effectively safeguarded the commercial interests of its client”. In April 2020, the Supreme People’s Court issued a ruling rejecting the retrial request.
China Business Law Journal’s editorial team has selected the outstanding China-related deals and cases in 2020, applauding remarkable legal efforts. All deals out of thousands of landmark transactions and disputes that have closed, or have had a significant development, between 1 November 2019 and 31 October 2020, following intensive research and consultation. The selection process attached the most importance to the overall significance, complexity and innovative nature of the deals and cases, while also taking into account deal size and broader interests.
