We are delighted to announce that the firm’s Intellectual Property (IPMT) practice has received top-tier rankings in the Chambers Asia Pacific, Chambers Greater China Region, and The Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2024 guides.

We scored ‘Band One’ IP  for the Asia Pacific region and in Japan, and were recognized as a leading firm for IP in Greater China and Vietnam by Chambers. Our Life Sciences group is also ranked ‘Band One’ in Asia Pacific and Japan. Among the individual recognitions, Lloyd Parker is recognized as an ‘Eminent Practitioner’ for IP and Frederick Ch’en as a ‘Band One’ individual for IP and Life Sciences in Japan. Partners Zhen (Katie) Feng and Helen Xia are also recognized for IP in Chambers Greater China. Chambers quoted client's comments that “Hogan Lovells always propose the best solutions based on global legal knowledge and experience.”

The Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2024 ranks our China and Japan IP practices and our China Life Sciences group in ‘Tier One’. Nine individuals in our APAC IP team from a number of jurisdictions across the region have also achieved high rankings. Notably, Zhen (Katie) Feng joined the ‘Hall of Fame’ for Intellectual Property in mainland China and three new ‘Rising Stars’ were recognized, Grace Guo and Yu-An Chang in mainland China, and PJ Kaur in Hong Kong. Our IP team was praised by clients in this ranking as “always innovative – pushing the edges to find better, more cost-efficient, more commercial ways of interacting with clients and colleagues. The quality of the lawyers is top flight.”

Helen Xia, head of our Intellectual Property, Media and Technology (IPMT) practice in Asia Pacific, commented: "We are tremendously proud of the achievements of our team. Our regional practice ranking and recognition is a reflection of the depth and breadth of our experience in advising clients on Intellectual Property matters and our ability to provide clients with the most sophisticated, multi-disciplinary level of advice and service.”
