CPA Recognised by IAM Patent 1000 as Top Patent Firm in China for 9 Consecutive Years;
4 CPA Senior Attorneys on its List of Recommended Professionals

Recently, the UK magazine Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) has published the 2020 edition of IAM Patent: The World's Leading Patent Professionals, an authoritative guide for the world’s top patent firms and professionals. China Patent Agent (H.K.) Ltd. (CPA) is pleased to share that it was named a "highly recommended" firm in patent prosecution and a "recommended" firm in patent litigation/transactions in China. Reflecting our overall strong performance in the patent field, the honours have been conferred to CPA for 9 consecutive years since the inception of the rankings.
Specifically, IAM's comments on our firm read as:
"Number one in China for patent matters” and one of the first three IP firms in the country, China Patent Agent (HK) Ltd has built long-term relationships with famous international companies that depend on the side to safeguard their IP rights. Through a “very efficient and reliable portfolio management system”, 230 patent attorneys, 30 patent engineers and 80 attorneys at law provide the full range of contentious and non-contentious patent services, particularly in the telecoms sector. … 'I truly appreciate their professionalism and dedication to our cases. They are one of the most professional firms we have worked with.' ”
In addition, CPA has 4 senior patent attorneys on the lists of IAM's "recommended" patent professionals in China, namely, general manager Mr. Zeng Xiangling and assistant general manager Mr. Yuan Shaohui in the category of patent prosecution, and CPA deputy general manager Mr. Wu Yuhe and Shanghai Office director Mr. Xiong Yanfeng in the category of patent litigation. According to the magazine, only those individuals identified by market sources for their exceptional skill sets and profound insights into patent matters will be included in IAM Patent 1000.
This year's IAM rankings derived its ratings on the basis of extensive research as well as 1,800-plus interviews conducted with attorneys at law, patent attorneys, and in-house counsel over 5 months in more than 50 key jurisdictions, taking into account such factors as depth of knowledge, market presence, the level of work, as well as peer and client feedback.
At the same time, the magazine has also released the 2020 edition of IAM Strategy 300 – The World’s Leading IP Strategists, and our Shanghai Office director Mr. Xiong Yanfeng was again awarded the title, an honour which he has enjoyed for years in succession, reflecting market recognition of his outstanding capacity in strategic operation within the IP community.
The award identifies the individuals who are leading the way in the development and implementation of strategies that maximise the value of IP portfolios, primarily through confidential nominations, followed by extensive research with senior members of the global IP community.
