Yesterday you could read here that Thelen Reid & Priest opened an office in Shanghai. Now Perkins Coie is opening their second office in China. After Beijing it is opening an office in Shanghai, located within the Shanghai Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park.
Read the press release here.
The Shanghai office will be staffed by two resident attorneys, Fabiola Suwanto (bio) and Zhaohui Zoe Wang (bio). The office will primarily focus on intellectual property rights, business and personal planning.
Another foreign law firm in Shanghai will mean more competition and hopefully more transparency in the information about IPR protection and enforcement in China. The more the merrier.
