LexField and Partners Once Again Ranked by IAM 1000DATE：2018-04-30 FROM：LexField
In the 2018 rankings recently announced by the leading IP magazine Intellectual Asset Management (IAM), LexField was ranked in the Silver band for litigation and transactions. Two LexField Partners, Yihong Jiang, David Huang, were recommended in two categories. It is the sixth consecutive year that LexField has been recognized as Silver Brand firm by IAM Patent 1000.
IAM commented: LexField Law Offices is a discerning choice for domestic and multinational clients in need of a man-at-arms in courtroom skirmishes and robust performance in non-contentious matters. Trusting in the team’s unrivalled success rate in retrials at the Supreme People’s Court, Qualcomm has delegated to it responsibility for three patent litigation suits brought by Apple. A patent litigation doyen, managing partner Hongyi Jiang is a dab hand in high-stakes infringement suits, often establishing new judicial precedents through his victories. Of the 10 infringement cases that have yielded damages awards of over Rmb20 million, Jiang has been on the winning side in nearly half.
Outside the courtroom, excellent drafting and strategy are the fortes of LexField’s “experienced, strategic and knowledgeable” patent attorneys, of which David Huang is leader. One client enthuses: “David gave us the full rundown of what was necessary for a successful patent application in China.” With his “superior English skills”, Huang fosters easy communication – a boon for international clients.
