CHINA DESK

karo IP | China Business

karo IP supports German and European companies active in China as well as Chinese clients operating in Germany and Europe. Our karo IP China Desk Team has many years’ experience in advising in cross-border projects, investments, and business activities involving intellectual property rights.

In close collaboration with our Chinese native speakers of the team, who received their legal, technical and scientific training in China and Germany, our patent and trademark attorneys have built long-term trust-based relations with Chinese IP law firms and companies for many years. There is a regular and close professional exchange with the aim of bundling expert knowledge as well as advising clients in the best possible way.

With our Chinese clients we communicate in English and Chinese.

For years, there has been a growing interest of our Chinese clients in investing in Germany and Europe, as well as an increasing involvement of German companies in China. With the expertise and commitment of the karo IP China Desk, our firm is able further to increase our support for such activities significantly from the legal side.

In our China Blog we regularly inform you about current topics in IP law (patents, trademarks, designs) and about IP strategies, e.g. relating to digital technologies, such as IoT and industry 4.0.
