Perkins Coie has expanded its presence in China through the establishment of an intellectual property agency in Beijing and the opening of a new location in Shenzhen. The Perkins Coie Intellectual Property Agency (Beijing) will include offices in both Beijing and Shenzhen and will support Perkins Coie’s substantial IP practice in China. The IP agency is licensed by the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) and is staffed with consultants and paralegals who have extensive experience in the registration, maintenance and enforcement of IP rights in the PRC. “We are excited to be able to directly offer this important suite of IP services to our clients,” said Scott Palmer, a Beijing-based partner who is leading the IP agency. The firm’s Shenzhen location will position it to serve clients in Guangdong Province and across South China. With close proximity to Hong Kong, Shenzhen has rapidly evolved as a key area for life sciences, information technology, advanced manufacturing, disruptive technology, and aerospace and transportation technology. In addition to partner Scott Palmer, the firm’s Beijing office is led by office managing partner Michael House and business partner James Zimmerman, In Shanghai, the firm’s office includes patent law counsel Yingli Wang and Louise Lu and is led by office managing partner Geoffrey Vance.
