Partner Spotlight: Unitalen IP Consulting

Since its founding in 1994, Unitalen has assumed its place as China’s preeminent, full-service, intellectual property firm. They offer a full battery of Chinese intellectual property (IP) and other technology services, including procuring, licensing and enforcing IP rights.

Unitalen-1What is Unitalen IP Consulting’s history in the San Francisco Bay Area?
Unitalen IP Consulting was established in late 2013 and began to operate in 2014. But far earlier than that, Unitalen Attorneys at Law, our parent company, had started working with SF law firms and supported many activities on the local IP platform, including sponsoring the McCarthy Law Symposium of USF. Meanwhile, quite a few of our parent company’s long-time international clients are based in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Tell us something most people don’t know about Unitalen IP Consulting.
We are not consulting on US IP laws; instead, we provide consultancy and information on China IP laws. We work with legal partners and clients on their IP legal issues in the Far East. To most people who are not familiar with China IP law firms, our parent company is one of the largest IP law firms in China with the most trademarks and patent filing in the country. Our team of litigation lawyers has been recognized by China Supreme Court as one of “the most outstanding IP legal teams”.

Unitalen-2What is rewarding about working at Unitalen IP Consulting?
As Chinese IP lawyers, we receive inquiries on IP matters in China. It is a rewarding experience to help local United States companies who have limited resources and information about the best practice in China to work out the right plan, and most important of all, to build up confidence in the Chinese IP system.

How does Unitalen IP Consulting serve the San Francisco Bay Area community?
Unitalen-3Our parent company has helped many US industry leaders, including Fortune 500 companies, in protecting and reclaiming their intellectual properties in the Chinese market for years. We will not only facilitate real-time communication and service delivery for the existing clients, but also will extend our top quality IP legal services to the local small- and mid-sized companies, who try to reach out to the Chinese market, with the most cost-effective solutions.

How has being a SF Chamber member helped Unitalen IP Consulting?
We appreciate SF Chamber for providing the business networking opportunities, through which we could understand the local businesses’ needs and concerns better.
