In a recent announcement, the international intellectual property specialist media, Managing IP, released the 2023 IP Stars list. Standing out among his peers, Johnson Li, a partner at GEN Law Firm, remarkably bagged two major recognitions – the Patent Star and Trademark Star, for his exemplary performance in the field.


Managing IP published its first legal directory in 1994 and relaunched it as IP STARS in 2013. Over the years, IP Stars has grown significantly and now covers six intellectual property practice areas across more than 70 jurisdictions. It is considered the most comprehensive and authoritative professional guide in the global intellectual property industry.

Earlier this year, GEN Law Firm received recognition in the "Trademark Disputes - Domestic Firms" category. Apart from that, our law firm is proud to have two of our partners, He Jing and Jerry Xia, received individual accolades. He Jing was honored in the "Patent Star" and "Trademark Star" list, while Jerry Xia was acknowledged in the "Patent Star" list. Moreover, partners Lily Dong and Pei Lyu received individual nominations for their contributions to the field. We are honored by these recognitions and are more determined than ever to continue providing our clients with exceptional legal services. Our firm's commitment to providing exceptional legal services with a customer-centric approach, has garnered us widespread praise from both the industry and our clients. Our clients have expressed their appreciation, noting our "down-to-earth working attitude and profound legal knowledge, and practical litigation strategy," our "creativity and passion," and our "excellent" service. One client particularly appreciated our "ability to work with my clients, who have very different needs. The firm offers bespoke solutions rather than a one-size-fits-all approach to advising on IP matters."

The recognition of Attorney Johnson Li in the “Patent Star” and “Trademark Star” list further cements our firm’s position as a leader in the field of intellectual property. His expertise and dedication truly embody the values and standards that our firm upholds.

Our intellectual property department has received numerous industry awards both as a team and as individuals, reflecting our unwavering determination to protect technological innovation, corporate brands, and creativity. We keep a close eye on the latest global best practices and policy changes to provide valuable suggestions on the evolution and reform of China's intellectual property. However, we don't settle for simply meeting expectations. We are constantly striving to exceed expectations, improve service capabilities, and offer our clients the best possible support.
