Fish & Richardson To Open Office in Shenzhen, Innovation Capital of China's Silicon Valley
Fish & Richardson, the largest intellectual property law firm in the U.S., today announced that the Chinese Ministry of Justice has approved its application to open a Representative Office in Shenzhen, China. Fish will provide U.S. and EU legal work for the firm's high profile Chinese clients - which include, among others, Huawei Technologies, Ant Financial, and Hisense Electric Co. Ltd. - from its new Shenzhen office.
Shenzhen boasts the highest number of PCT (Patent Cooperation Treaty) applications of any city in China. The city is home to some of China's most innovative companies who account for almost 50 percent of Chinese PCT filings.
We are excited to be opening an office in China's Silicon Valley. We serve many of China's leading innovators, and this will give us a base of operations to meet their needs on the ground, in real time, whenever they need us, said Peter Devlin, President of Fish & Richardson.
Ryan McCarthy, a principal of the firm, will serve as the firm's Chief Representative in residence. Yong (Eric) Peng, Ph.D., an associate, will also represent the firm in the new Shenzhen office. Dr. Peng speaks fluent Mandarin.
Fish has helped China's leading companies obtain, enforce and defend their intellectual propertyrights in the U.S. and Europe for many years. Fish attorneys help Chinese companies in the telecommunications, electronics, financial technology, life sciences, and medical device industries obtain patent and trademark protection in the U.S. and Europe and represent Chinese companies in federal district and appeals courts, at the International Trade Commission (ITC) and before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB).
In addition to opening the Shenzhen office, Fish has forged a partnership with Zhejiang Hangzhou Future SCI-TECH City (STC). Fish plans to use STC as a platform to meet with clients and potential clients in East China.
