AWA Asia (Part of the Awapatent Group)

Activity

We are a leading intellectual property consultancy firm with a presence both in Europe and Asia. Building on the firm’s Tier 1 reputation in intellectual property in Europe, we are able to offer a seamless and coordinated IP service across 2 major continents - Europe and Asia. The establishment of AWA Asia is our response to the ever-growing needs of our clients who need direct assistance on the ground while navigating the extremely complex but highly rewarding Asian market, particularly in China. The importance of having experienced local advisors for the management of IP portfolios as well as the enforcement of the same has never been more critical to industry players in the Chinese market in order to stay competitive and relevant in the face of new market entrants, and also to effectively tackle problems that come with IP disputes such as infringements and piracy. In Hong Kong, where AWA Asia is headquartered, we can handle all aspects of IP portfolio Management directly before the Hong Kong IP Department. Our wholly owned subsidiary in China, AWA IP (Beijing) Co Ltd, is a locally licensed intellectual property and trade mark agency which can file and enforce trademarks in China directly before the Trade Mark Office and administrative authorities. Whether you are a global MNC or a fast growing start-up looking to penetrate and navigate the market in China, or a Chinese company looking to protect and commercialize your IP in Europe, we provide a seamless coordinated service for your needs on both continents. Our team of seasoned professionals on the ground in Asia have legal backgrounds from China, Hong Kong, Singapore, the United Kingdom and Sweden.
