World Trademark Review (WTR) has recently released its annual ranking report -“World Trademark Review 1000 - The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals”. Chang Tsi & Partners has once again defended its position as Gold-band law firm, and has been listed in both “Enforcement and Litigation” and “Prosecution and Strategy” categories. Simon Tsi, Spring Chang and other five professionals from our elite team are also recognized as leading individuals.
WTR 1000 is a unique guide that identifies the top trademark professionals in key jurisdictions around the globe, focused exclusively on trademark practice. Firms and individuals in the gold band are those that attract the most positive comments from sources and undertake the most sophisticated work.
As commented by the WTR, Chang Tsi & Partners is "a perfect match for those seeking swift trademark registration, smooth IP dispute resolution experience and commercially savvy portfolio management counsel".
The fulcrum of the outfit is founding partner Spring Chang and Simon Tsi, who are widely recognised as the top trademark lawyers in the country. The couple spearheads this market-leading brand protection practice with greatest possible delicacy and precision. Chang takes on the prosecution and anti-counterfeiting matters while Tsi sets his sights on the contentious front. Nancy Qu is a formidable IP litigator and has tackled multiple highly complex and technical IP infringement cases before courts in her years with the outfit. Well versed in meeting both prosecution and contentious demands, partner Michael Fu takes charge of multiple IP enforcement and protection strategy matters for a stellar roster of Fortune 500 players, including HP, Under Armour, Michael Kors, Tiffany and Four Seasons. Working alongside him in the trademark department are Ason Zhang, Runjun Sun and Lilian Qiu. Elevated to the partner level recently, Zhang exhibits a wide range of interests in the IP field. He focuses on the electronics, pharmaceuticals and jewellery sectors and his practice extends to domain names, unfair competition and dispute resolution. Trademark agent Sun knows all the drills of a successful trademark application and is equally proficient at review of refusal, opposition and invalidation. Qiu is the one to call when you need one-stop legal services in China. She has garnered praises from service users and peers for her holistic IP strategy and brand protectionpractice.
On 10 March 2022, Michael Fu, Partner of Chang Tsi & Partner and Member of INTA’s Enforcement Committee, was invited by INTA to present on China’s IP judiciary in the Flash Briefing.
