In the context of her business law practice, Leila also guides clients on China-related IP matters including trademark portfolio and registrations, licensing, anti-counterfeiting. She also advises on unfair competition enforcement with respect to the consumer products and technology sectors.

Leila received her master’s degree in intellectual property law from East China University of Political Science and Law, and her bachelor’s degree in international economic law (with a minor in Finance) from Shanghai University of International Business and Economics.

Helping you succeed in tomorrow's world

China is investing to build a global centre of excellence in artificial intelligence technology and life sciences. Protection and commercialisation of intellectual properties are core to the success of this development. I hope my consolidated experience in both business law and IP law can add value to our clients when they are exploring opportunities and business partnership in the new era.
