International law firm CMS is continuing its Hong Kong expansion with the appointment of a three person intellectual property team. Partner Jonathan Chu joins associated Hong Kong firm Lau, Horton & Wise, together with senior associates Mengyi Chen and Candy Tong. Chu and his team join from Stephenson Harwood.

Chu is a highly-experienced intellectual property lawyer with a complete IP practice ranging from advising on transactions, to worldwide prosecution of IP rights, to IP litigation and enforcement strategies in Hong Kong and China. He regularly advises clients in local and cross-border IP strategies and is recognized for his work across life sciences, fashion, toys and games, consumer goods, hospitality, TMT, entertainment, aviation, and energy. All three lawyers are Hong Kong-qualified.

“The appointment of Jonathan and his team is a key part of our strategy to develop our IP practice in Asia-Pacific, with a particular focus in Hong Kong, Singapore and Beijing,” said Nick Beckett, head of Asia-Pacific IP and global co-head of the life sciences and healthcare sector group at CMS. “Through these additions, we are setting up a whole new practice in Hong Kong, where we will now have full IP capability at both a local and international level. In this way, we are responding to the growing need from clients for IP expertise on the ground.”
