IP Acquisition & Divestiture
Enabling Patent Transactions in China
Many successful Chinese technology companies are now expanding their business, and selling their
products in countries outside of China. As they expand to new geographies, Chinese companies find
themselves vulnerable to patent assertions from established players in these new markets. Many have
recognized that they need a portfolio of good patents for defensive purposes. These companies are
now looking to acquire patents granted in the US, Europe and in other geographies.
TechPats has recently begun working with China’s Intellectual Property Publishing House (IPPH) to help
our clients tap into the significant opportunities that exist in this emerging IP market. Our primary area
of focus here is patent transactions; specifically, helping foreign companies that are looking to divest
assets arrange patent sales to Chinese companies looking for valuable IP.
