Partner Lai Lam Recognized as Trade Mark Star 2021/22

We are delighted to announce that IP STARS has once again ranked our Partner Lai Lam as a Trade Mark Star for Hong Kong in recognition of her outstanding legal advice and client service.

Each year, IP STARS research teams from Hong Kong, London, and New York conduct 6-month independent research on thousands of firms globally. They assess the IP practitioners and firms’ expertise, workload, market reputation, track record, outcomes achieved for clients, and their unique strengths in each practice area. For a practitioner to be ranked by IP STARS, one must be highly regarded by their peers and clients that are integral to their firm’s success or reputation.

Lai was admitted to practise as a solicitor in Hong Kong in 1989, in England and Wales in 1993 and in Singapore in 1995. Lai joined the firm in 2002.

Lai’s practice covers all areas of intellectual property. She frequently advises on the selection and suitability of trade marks for use and registration; opposition and rectification proceedings; the drafting and registration of trade mark licences; and user agreements and the assignment of trade mark rights.

Lai has handled large trade mark portfolios for clients regionally and internationally, in both the private and public sectors and in various fields, including acting for leading international companies operating in fashion and luxury goods.

In addition, Lai is a member of the Asian Patent Attorneys Association and a former Board Member of Interlaw and Vice Chair for the Asia Pacific Region. She is currently the Vice Chair for the Interlaw Diversity, Inclusion and Community Special Business Team for Asia Pacific. She has also been appointed as a Civil Celebrant of Marriages.
