China (Foreign Firms)
Rouse has offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. It provides advice on both contentious and non-contentious issues connected to patents. Case studies show the firm's patent team representing famous French stroller manufacturer Babyzen in a patent infringement case against Zhongshan Bao Bei You Daily Products.
A client comments: "Rouse has shown extraordinary professionalism and expertise in protecting our patent portfolio in the Chinese market. We are deeply impressed by its collaborative approach across different practice teams and deep knowledge of the Chinese legislation system. Without their great support, we would not be able to achieve such encouraging results when faced with aggressive infringers." Another client recommends executive Jin Ling: "Very good at operating across the Chinese-European cultures. Solution-oriented. Clearly respected in China." Ling is well known for her commercial expertise. She has also advised on a number of high-profile patent litigation cases.
Vietnam (Patent contentious)
International IP firm Rouse has a strong contentious patent team. Its prosecution group has also had a busy year. An offshore client says: "The Rouse team adapted quickly to requests and kept in good contact to ensure it met customer expectations and needs." The client recommends Vietnam's head of IP Chris Vale, Yen Vu and Nina Nguyen. Tu Nguyen, who is skilled in IP enforcement, Yen Pham, trained in chemical engineering and environmental technology, and Nga Trinh, a patent prosecution and oppositions expert, are experienced practitioners.
