 - Growing client base underlines regions
strong focus on intellectual property
and increasing
for professional IP services

 - Achievements mark second anniversary of Hong Kong

CPA Global, the world’s top intellectual property (IP)
management specialist and a leading provider of legal services
outsourcing (LSO), has made significant inroads into the Greater
market since opening its office in Hong Kong two years ago,
helping a growing number of companies protect and manage their
valuable IP assets.

On the second anniversary of its Hong Kong office, CPA Global is
celebrating successful growth in Greater China (including China,
Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan), and an expanding client base,
comprising leading corporations in sectors such as
telecommunications, electronics, and semi-conductors.

Clients include international telecommunications solutions
provider Huawei Technologies; leading global manufacturing
companies Johnson Electric and Techtronic Industries (TTI); The
Chinese University of Hong Kong; and China Patent Agent, one of
China’s leading IP agencies.

Prior to opening its Hong Kong office, CPA Global had already
forged successful business alliances in Japan and Korea, and
established a strong operational presence in India. The aim of the
Hong Kong office was to spearhead CPA Global’s business development
in North and South East Asia, with a particular focus on the
fast-growing Greater China region.

Commenting on the company’s achievements in the region over the
past two years, CPA Global Group Chief Executive Peter Sewell said:
“The phenomenal economic growth in Greater China has brought with
it a stronger focus on intellectual property as companies in the
region increasingly develop their own IP and recognise the value of
that intellectual capital. Indeed, China is now the world’s fastest
growing market for IP and the largest filer of international
patents. We are delighted to have made such significant inroads
into this important region since opening our Hong Kong office, and
are pleased to be able to celebrate two successful years of helping
clients throughout Greater China manage and protect their valuable
IP assets.”

Joanne Hon, CPA Global’s Head of Sales & Marketing, Asia,
who has led the Hong Kong office since its opening, said: “As
companies in Greater China have become more international in their
outlook and operations, they have seen the benefits of enlisting
professional IP management companies like CPA Global to help them
manage their IP portfolios to ensure that their prized IP assets
are protected and maintained. We are seeing increasing
opportunities to work with companies throughout Greater China, as
well as other parts of North and South East Asia. Earlier this
month, we opened our first office in Korea and we are planning to
open further offices in China over the next couple of years.”

Commenting on their successful working relationship with CPA
Global, Chris Murray, Senior Corporate Patent Attorney - Johnson
Electric Group, said: “In appointing CPA Global to handle our
patent renewals, we were seeking improved efficiency, cost savings,
reliability and, above all, peace of mind. And that’s exactly what
they’ve delivered for us. This has enabled us to concentrate on
other matters and not have to worry about our patent renewals as we
know everything will be handled in timely fashion and without drama
by CPA Global; and that we will be promptly informed and fully
briefed should any issue arise. On top of this, their customer
support teams are always quick to respond and friendly to deal

Added Emmanuelle Prono, Assistant General Counsel at Techtronic
Industries (TTI): “When we looked at consolidating TTI Group’s IP
renewal systems and processes, CPA Global was one of the very few
IP service providers able to satisfy all of our needs in
relation to the renewal of a large and diverse IP portfolio, as
well as the monitoring of that portfolio. What made the difference
was the proximity and quality of the service of CPA Global’s staff,
whether based in Europe or Asia. We are very happy today with the
services provided in maintaining and protecting our iconic brands
and patents portfolio.”

Xiangling Zeng, Patent Attorney and Deputy General Manager at
China Patent Agent (H.K.) Ltd, commented: “Our two companies have
developed a strong business relationship and, with the ongoing
growth of CPA Global’s Hong Kong office, we believe our
relationship will continue to foster and grow.”
