CPA Ranked MIP's Top Tier Firm for Both Patent Prosecution and Trademark Prosecution & 4 CPA Litigators Named Outstanding IP Practitioners
The Managing Intellectual Property (MIP) magazine has recently released the results of its IP Stars 2023 rankings. China Patent Agent (H.K.) Ltd. (CPA) is glad to report that in this year's MIP rankings, our firm was again ranked a Tier 1 patent prosecution firm, and in the category of trademark prosecution, we were also recognised as a Tier 1 firm; furthermore, CPA was on MIP 's recommendation lists for both patent contentious and trademark contentious work.
The rankings were derived based on six months' telephone, e-mail, and face-to-face surveys of thousands of corporations and law firms as well as the magazine's independent researches into published data and information (such as those disclosed by the courts and IP offices), taking into account such factors as the candidates' caseload, work quality, professional proficiency, attorney team, client feedback, and market reputation. Our firm is honoured to be rated a top tier firm for years in a row for patent prosecution and this year we were also named a top tier firm for trademark prosecution, which we believe reflect peers and clients' recognition of our technical expertise and our devotion to professionalism as well as our unswerving priority given to quality service.
Some of our clients' endorsements of our service were mentioned by MIP:
"Fast response, deep understanding of our technology and business needs. The firm is precise and clear in describing the necessities of a case";
"The attorneys in the firm have the technical expertise and understanding to check our drafts properly and make amendments, if necessary. Furthermore, the firm has the administrative capabilities needed";
"The firm is professional and devoted."
In addition to leading IP firms, MIP has concurrently revealed its 2023 lists of global outstanding IP practitioners, and we are pleased to share that four CPA attorneys were on the lists: general manager Mr. Wu Yuhe and assistant general manager Mr. Xiong Yanfeng were named as Patent Star; litigator Mr. Tang Chunlong as Rising Star; and litigator Mr. Liu Peng as Notable Practitioner. The outstanding practitioner lists were determined through broad-based surveys by MIP's research teams based in London, New York, and Hong Kong in combination with feedback and comments from peers and clients.
Also, we are delighted to be among the recently announced winners of the MIP Asia-Pacific Awards 2023, as the sole winner of China Patent Prosecution Firm of the Year, for the fifth consecutive year.
