Eugene is likewise an all-rounded IP practitioner with a track record of contentious and advisory work experience in Hong Kong and China.

“This is an exciting development for our Greater China IP practice further bolstering our well recognised top-tier position and consolidating our lead in the market supporting local and international clients across key sectors. The trio are eager to align and integrate with our practice to provide clients with that unique strength and depth of service Hogan Lovells’ IP team is renowned for.” 


Dr Andreas Von Flack, partner and Global practice group leader for Hogan Lovells IP practice, commented: 


“We are the only IP practice to be ranked top-tier by the leading legal directories on a Global, European and Asian basis. However, it is critical for our clients that we continue to extend that leadership position in highly competitive growth markets, such as China and Hong Kong where we have long been regarded as the best. Strategic lateral hires with the pedigree of Alan, Eugene and Kenny ensure that we will continue to lead the field in providing clients with a unique blend of practice depth and industry sector coverage.”
