Perkins Coie Announces Opening of New Office in Taipei, Taiwan
Perkins Coie Foreign Legal Affairs Attorneys at Law announced it has opened a new office in Taipei, Taiwan.
The announcement, which came in recent days, will serve to broaden Perkins Coie’s Asia practice, as well as to better serve its Taiwan-based clients, especially in patent litigation and other intellectual property matters.
Jonathan James, firm wide Patent Litigation practice co-chair was quoted as saying in a press release at the firm’s website: “We are excited to open this office in Taipei to be able to better serve the needs of our Taiwanese technology clients. The attorneys at Perkins Coie have been actively representing Taiwanese companies for more than a decade in many high profile patent cases. As our commitment to these clients expands and our relationships deepen, it is a natural and welcome step that Perkins opens an office in Taipei.”
James, a partner in the firm’s Phoenix office, concentrates his practice on patent, intellectual property and other commercial litigation for technology companies. He has represented clients, including Intel and HTC, in patent cases all over the United States. As well, he frequently counsels clients about patent enforcement and licensing issues and has extensive experience advising clients about, negotiating with and litigating against “non-practicing entities.”
James also assists U.S. technology companies in intellectual property infringement and licensing/unfair competition litigation matters in China. He possesses considerable experience and knowledge about China’s intellectual property, licensing and competition laws and about civil litigation in the Chinese courts. As such, he has worked closely with Chinese counsel in these matters and travels to China frequently.
Perkins Coie’s Taiwanese-based clients include HTC, ASUSTeK, ATEN International, Elitegroup Computer Systems, Largan Precision, Princo, Lite-On Group and Monolithic Power Systems. The firm secured an important patent litigation victory recently for HTC before the U.S. International Trade Commission in a case filed against it and others by FlashPoint Technologies.
Perkins Coie has over 175 attorneys involved in patent litigation, prosecution and licensing, with more than 100 of those attorneys having science degrees, including degrees in electrical engineering, computer engineering, computer science, and in numerous life sciences disciplines. The firm regularly represents leading technology and life sciences companies in patent litigation in federal courts throughout the United States and before the International Trade Commission.
The firm was the recipient of significant recognition for its intellectual property practice, including top ten rankings in the 2011 Top Law Firms for Patent Quality by Information Technology and the 2011 Top 20 All Industries list by Intellectual Asset Management magazine and Ocean Tomo. In addition, the firm and its attorneys are recognized in numerous IP rankings, including Chambers USA and Best Lawyers.
The Taipei office is Perkins Coie’s third office in Asia. The firm’s other Asia offices, in Beijing and Shanghai, represent Chinese and multinational companies in intellectual property matters in the areas of technology and life sciences, corporate finance and securities, international business and personal planning.
With more than 800 lawyers in 19 offices across the United States, China and Taiwan, Perkins Coie serves great companies ranging in size from start-ups to FORTUNE 100 corporations.Perkins Coie Announces Opening of New Office in Taipei, Taiwan by rebneely
