Date: 01 March 2018
Location: China-Britain Business council 3rd Floor, Portland House, Bressenden Place, London SW1E 5BH

For many firms, legal uncertainty and concerns about the protection of their company’s intellectual property rights (IPR) are enough to dissuade them from doing business in China. With proper guidance and planning, most SME’s can mitigate this risk through strong enforceable legal agreements together with an IPR strategy. 

Intellectual property rights (IPR) are commonly cited as one of the major deterrents for companies new to working in China. Although China’s system for IPR protection is improving, challenges remain, and SMEs are advised to take necessary precautions before entering the market. Whether you are considering manufacturing in China, or to sell your products or services into the market, IPR protection is a key issue for companies across different sectors.

Attend this half day workshop to hear from experienced legal experts about contracting in China and protecting your IP rights there. 

The workshop will cover the following topics:

  • Negotiating contracts in China
  • How to draft distributor agreements
  • Introduction to China’s IP system
  • Guidance on patents, trademarks, and copyright protection
  • IP enforcement strategies
  • Discussion / Q&A
