Jones Day
Hong Kong

Intellectual property Tier 2

Co-headed from Hong Kong by Chiang Ling Li and Haifeng Huang , and also able to tap into a strong presence in mainland China (as well as a fully licensed IP agency in Beijing), Jones Day provides a 'well-rounded offering' to multinational corporates and local entities across their IP prosecution, litigation, and commercial activity/portfolio management. The firm is particularly strong on behalf of technology and life sciences companies, with work including patent litigation and technology licensing disputes. Huang has an excellent track-record representing US and Chinese entities in IP disputes; he recently successfully represented Qualcomm in the defence of a high-profile trade mark action filed against it by a Shanghai company which asserted that Qualcomm's Chinese company name infringed the plaintiff's trade marks. The team also regularly provides the IP due diligence on M&A matters involving significant IP assets.

Projects and energy Tier 3

Recent work highlights for the team at Jones Day includes advising solar panel manufacturer JinkoSolar LATAM Holding on a $40m facility and a $30m greenshoe facility arranged by the Singapore branch of Credit Suisse for financing four solar projects in Argentina and Mexico. Maria Pedersen is the main practitioner to note.

Capital markets (equity) Tier 4

Jones Day's team is particularly active in the fast-growing biotech, healthcare, life sciences and TMT sectors. Its work also covers more traditional industries, such as infrastructure and financial services, among others. The group attracts a strong flow of high-profile IPOs, placings and rights issues, compliance and M&A, among other matters. Clients include Chinese SOEs and private companies undertaking transactions across Greater China, Asia-Pacific and Southeast Asia. The practice is led by Joelle Lau, whose track record in the Hong Kong capital markets sphere dates back nearly 20 years. Lau works with Charles ChauTerry Kwok and Donna Ko.
