China

As both the world’s fastest-growing economy and consumer market, China has evolved from a center of manufacturing to a home of diversified multinational corporations.

Today, many Chinese companies are realizing the benefits of establishing IP rights in the U.S., because the U.S. economy is built upon a legal system adapted for upholding private property rights, especially those regarding intellectual property.  

Knobbe Martens has a long history of helping Chinese and other Asia-Pacific clients successfully navigate the constant change in U.S. IP law on legislative, administrative and judicial fronts.  Likewise, we also represent U.S.-based technology and life science companies seeking to leverage their homegrown IP into the China market.

中国

中国是全球增长速度最快的经济区域和消费市场,一直是全球制造中心,大量多元化跨国公司选择在这里安家落户。

如今,很多中国企业意识到在美国申请知识产权有诸多优势,因为美国法律制度坚决维护私有产权,特别是涉及知识产权的私有产权,这是美国经济赖以发展的基础。 

Knobbe Martens 长期致力帮助中国及其他亚太地区客户顺应美国知识产权法在立法、行政和司法领域的持续转变。同样,我们也是在中国寻求发展的众多美国技术和生命科学企业的一员,极力运用美国本土知识产权优势开拓中国市场。
