Mayer Brown has been ranked by Asian Legal Business as a top-tier firm across all categories in China and in two out of three categories in Hong Kong in its recently released IP Rankings 2016.

The firm is ranked Tier 1 for Patents and Trademark/Copyright in China. The publication attributes the firm’s top rankings to the practice’s recent victories representing Chinese companies before the International Trade Commission in Section 337 patent litigation cases over the last year.

The Asia IP team is ranked Tier 1 for Trademark/Copyright and Tier 2 for Patents in Hong Kong.

“We’re thrilled with this recognition,” said Gabriela Kennedy, head of Mayer Brown IP & TMT group and co-leader of Mayer Brown’s global IP practice. “It’s a testament to our continued commitment to providing the absolute best for our clients. It also further reaffirms Mayer Brown’s reputation as one of the top law firms for IP in the region. I couldn’t be prouder of the team.”
