Our Commitment to Diversity
Jay C. Chiu

Jay Chiu concentrates his practice on complex litigation and intellectual property matters, with a focus on US patent litigation, trade secret litigation, contested Patent Office proceedings, and IP licensing and counseling matters.

After more than 12 years of litigating patent infringement cases while based in the US, in 2013 Jay relocated to Asia to provide counseling and direct support on the ground to his Asia-based clients. Currently, he splits his time between the Greater China region and the US based on case needs. In his nearly 20 years of handling all aspects of patent litigation, he has represented a number of international corporations and diverse technology clients--including computer, semiconductor, liquid crystal display, optical storage, software, self-balancing vehicles, robotic devices, biotech, supplement, container, battery, and mobile phone/telecommunication companies--in patent infringement, trade dress infringement, and trade secret actions in federal courts across the country and/or before the International Trade Commission (ITC). His patent litigation successes include several complete defense victories for his clients after trial and on summary judgment.

Jay also helps clients develop offensive and defensive patent strategies by guiding them in pre-litigation analyses and license negotiations, providing opinions of counsel, handling contested Patent Office proceedings, and managing patent portfolio development.

He has also represented clients in commercial disputes and has experience with internal investigations, FCPA, and international arbitration matters.

Jay has been selected and recognized since the inaugural edition of The Best Lawyers in China® for both Intellectual Property and Litigation Practice (International Firms).

Prior to joining the firm, Jay was intellectual property and litigation counsel in the Hong Kong and Los Angeles offices of another international law firm.
