On September 14, 2023, LegalOne - a research corporation for legal services worldwide - released its rating for the case "FMC secures pre-suit injunction in China for patent infringement," which was represented by GEN Law Firm. We are thrilled to share that this case has been awarded “LegalOne Merits (Exemplary)”. It means that this case is recognized as a model case for the industry given the unique merits it has presented. This case is indeed a very rare pre-suit injunction in a patent infringement lawsuit in China in favor of a foreign company in the recent years.
The GEN Law team members for this case include Jerry Xia, Simon Du, Aaron Zhou, and Melody Ye. As LegalOne noted, "GEN Law Firm provided assistance throughout the entire litigation process for FMC, encompassing the development of a litigation strategy and representation in all court proceedings and settlement negotiations. Notably, the law firm exhibited ingenuity by offering advice to FMC regarding forum shopping. A pivotal moment arose when the initial phase of the case encountered an impasse in Shanghai due to the city's pandemic-induced lockdown. The law firm therefore turned to the Ningbo Court for the pre-suit injunction application."
