Kolster China Desk™

Effectively & securely on the Chinese market

"We can offer your company the best China IP services in Finland and Europe. Kolster China Desk™ understands local practices and laws in China, and operates in the Chinese language. We have decades of experience of partnerships in China. We help both start-ups and big companies to set up, expand or protect their businesses across China," says Kolster's export.

"We will be your strategic business partner in IP issues. It is worth contacting us when planning and considering business operations in China. Together, we will develop a strategy for the registration of your trademarks and products in China and the end-to-end management of your patent, design right and copyright applications. Our specialists will also help you if your trademark has already been ‘snatched’. This is unfortunately common in China."

The Chinese Trademark Association CTA granted Kolster full membership in 2017.

"We are the first foreign member of the CTA to gain full membership. It's great that we have a direct channel for influencing the development of Chinese trademark law and practices. Our membership bears strong testimony to our long-term work and expertise in China."
