The event provided an informal setting to offer expert advice and support from Haseltine Lake’s team of Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys – Daniel Chew (Partner), Jane More O’Ferrall (Partner), Alex Rogers (Partner) and Michael Conway (Associate) who all have extensive experience in helping UK businesses secure IP protection in China.

Commenting on the evening, Daniel says, “We were delighted to welcome a select number of professionals to Bristol last night. Operating in the Chinese market and protecting your business in China are critical issues for UK businesses, and this is more apparent today than ever before. Some of our clients have experienced issues when operating in this market, so we wanted to provide an informal setting to offer our support and for the businesses to share their own experiences. The Chinese IP system is improving all the time but remains very different to the UK and European systems, and we hope the evening provided our guests with some practical advice and resources to help them make their next step confidently.”

With extensive experience in helping UK businesses secure robust IP protection in China, China is an important part of Haseltine Lake’s growth strategy. The firm has had a representative office in Guangzhou, China, since 2009, and is well connected throughout the region.
