We are proud to announce that Timothy Letters and Laurence Thoo, principals of Letters & Thoo, have been recommended as leading patent practitioners in Hong Kong by Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) “The World’s Leading Patent Practitioners” peer nominated survey for 2015.

According to the publication, “Timothy Letters and Laurence Thoo  are rare birds. They are dedicated to IP and know the patent system inside out. The two technically trained founders of their own eponymous shop are great choices for complex prosecution mandates across a range of technologies.”

IAM Patent 1000, published by Intellectual Asset Management, is considered to be one of the world’s most independent, extensively-researched and well-respected guides to the top patent practitioners in key jurisdictions around the globe. The ratings and information published in IAM Patent 1000 involved over 1,500 interviews over 5 months with numerous attorneys at law, patent attorneys and in-house counsel to gather market intelligence on the leading players in the field.

We wish to congratulate our colleagues from around the world that have been acknowledged in the guide and we also thank all of our clients and staff for helping us to achieve these global accolades.
