Oldham, Li & Nie

Led by Vera Sung, the IP team at independent Hong Kong firm Oldham, Li & Nie has strong ties with small and medium-sized enterprises as well as larger international businesses, and is active across a range of IP issues including trade marks, patents and copyrights. General litigator Stephen Chan regularly handles IP disputes, including his representation of Korean cosmetics brand Jayjun Cosmetic in a "squatting" case brought against a Hong Kong brand, alleging that it is trading under the name of "Jayjun" without due authority.

Oldham, Li & Nie

Although it does also handle employer-side work, independent Hong Kong law firm Oldham, Li & Nie is best-known for its representation of employees (including many high-level executives at financial institutions), and as well as receiving direct instructions also receives a significant amount of referral work from other law firms. The team was recently considerably weakened at partner level by the departure in September 2018 of Adam Hugill, who left to establish boutique law firm Hugill & IP. Senior associate Jade Tang  excels at handling M&A and transaction-based employment work, and recently provided Hong Kong law input advice to an international law firm that was instructed by the seller of a Hong Kong company to a Korean purchaser. Since the seller was still maintaining a minority interest in the company, the documentation had to ensure that its minority rights were protected and that the key employees’ interests were taken care of under the employment contract and the share option agreement. Christopher Hooley also recently left to join Hugill's new firm. Clients include Zedra, FT Life Insurance, Aldi and Platinum Wines.
