Career

On January 1st, 2008, Paul RANJARD joined WAN HUI DA as Of Counsel.

Paul RANJARD graduated from the Paris Law School and obtained his License to practice as an attorney at law in 1968.

In 1972, he stayed for one year with Theodore Goddards & Co., a reputed firm of Solicitors in the City of London. He registered at the Bar of Paris in 1972 and, until 1980, practiced commercial litigation both as an assistant to several lawyers as well as within a firm specializing in litigation conducted before the Commercial Courts.

In 1981, he moved to Hong Kong and opened the local branch of a French law firm Sonier & Coblence. Back in Paris in 1982, he resumed his independent practice of litigator and joined Delile & Biet as a partner. In April 1986, Paul RANJARD participated in a comparative law seminar in Beijing, jointly organized by the Chinese Ministry of Justice and the Paris Bar, and afterwards returned to China every year, assisting French companies with their business ventures in China.

Mr. RANJARD moved to Beijing in September 1997, and opened the Representative Office of the French association Unifab, specializing in the protection of Intellectual Property. As a result, his practice in China evolved progressively towards Intellectual Property matters. He was elected in 2000 as vice chair, and then co-chair, of the IPR Working Group of the European Chamber of Commerce, a position that he occupies still. Throughout his time in Beijing, Paul RANJARD has cooperated with WAN HUI DA in field actions and academic research.

Paul RANJARD is an active speaker at academic seminars and international conferences. He is the co-author of "Roadmap for the protection of trademarks in China", co-drafted in 2003 with Mr. BAI Gang and Dr. HUANG Hui, and more recently, co-authored two more books with these gentlemen, "Actions Speak Louder than Words" (Managing Intellectual Property / China IP Focus 2007) and "Relative Grounds of Refusal in China & EU" (MIP / China IP Focus 2008).

In 2013, Paul RANJARD was elected member of the China Trademark Office Subcommittee of the Trademark Office Practices Committee (TOPC) of the International Trademark Association (INTA) for the 2014/15 term.
