Litigation and Arbitration

Litigation and Arbitration

Whether you are bringing a lawsuit or being sued, IPO Pang practices all aspects of commercial law litigation. We are never afraid to go to court and are always well prepared with our evidentiary offerings. We conduct thorough due diligence on the opposing party before we embark on bringing or defending a lawsuit, and, where appropriate, we try to settle the case at the highest value.

Our litigation experience includes cases involving:

  • Unfair competition, all aspects of IP litigation
  • Commercial disputes, partner and shareholder disputes
  • Trademark civil cases, appeals
  • Bribery, corruption, white collar crimes, corporate theft
  • Lease/real estate, land disputes, landlord/tenant
  • Divestiture and bankruptcy, including bankruptcy of WFOE and Foreign Parent
  • Priority rights
  • Breach of contract, with particular emphasis on force majeure
  • Distribution disputes, sales and territorial disputes, licensing disputes
  • Import/export trade disputes

We pride ourselves in being experienced in many industries, including retail, IT, entertainment, trading, health and life sciences, biotechnology, medical equipment, manufacturing, apparel, chemical and many other industries.

Where the venue is such that it would be economically more efficient to have one of our partner litigation firms handle it as local counsel, where we serve as first chair, we do so to reduce the cost of travel. China is a big country, and with our network of talented litigators and legal consultants, we are able to serve as litigation central for many multi-nationals who desire effective litigation management at a reasonable cost.

Clients trust us to handle their litigation in China. Our experience with complex cross-border litigation; our ability to assign and fully staff each case with bilingual attorneys and technicians; and our breadth and depth of background and understanding of many industries give us unique insights to advise, litigate, arbitrate and eliminate the competition where sophisticated representation is essential.

 

We often partner with our clients, so that some of our fees are based on success and, where appropriate, we may consider handling a litigation matter on a contingency basis.

In matters of arbitration, we have often appeared as both arbitrator and mediator on numerous cases. While litigation is our expertise, arbitration is a viable alternative should the elongated court process not be in the client’s best interest. Often, we have inserted a preference for arbitration in agreements we draft on behalf of our clients.

We represent our clients aggressively during any mediation process and in court, zealously by leveraging our years of experience, hours of backroom research and tons of know how that only comes from practical first chair learning. For these and many other reasons, clients come to us “WHEN BEING RIGHT MATTERS”®.
