Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton Opens Office In Beijing

Issued: January 31 2019

Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton has opened an office in Beijing. The office will operate as a trademark agency and will primarily support the strategic client needs of US and Europeanbased brands in the China market. The office will also enable the firm to more closely collaborate with China counsel in the region.


Christopher Woods, a coleader of Kilpatrick Townsend’s Asia practice team and head of the China brands practice, will serve as the Beijing office managing partner. Shuang Yu, an associate, and Qunfan Chen, a trademark agent, will also serve as senior members of the office. Other senior members of the China brands practice, including Sindy Ding-Voorhees, Wendy Cheng and Gwen Kui will also play an active role in the expansion and support of the Beijing office.


“Kilpatrick Townsend has long represented the interests of clients who are US brand owners in China. While US brand owners continue to expand their reach into the vibrant China market, it is clear that China brand owners are now emerging as a force on the world stage, especially in the US,” said Woods. “Developing relationships with China brand owners is an excellent opportunity to continue growing the China brands practice.”
