Jay Chiu concentrates his practice on complex litigation and intellectual property matters, with a focus on U.S. patent litigation, contested Patent Office proceedings, and IP licensing and counseling matters. He has also represented clients in commercial disputes and has experience with internal investigations, FCPA, and international arbitration matters.
After more than 11 years of litigating patent infringement cases while based in the U.S., in 2013 Mr. Chiu relocated to Asia to provide counseling and direct support on the ground to his Asia-based clients. Currently, Mr. Chiu splits his time between the Greater China region and the U.S. based on case needs. In his more than 15 years of handling all aspects of patent litigation, Mr. Chiu has represented a number of international corporations and diverse technology clients, including computer, semiconductor, liquid crystal display, optical storage, software, and telecommunication companies. In addition to guiding clients in pre-litigation analyses and helping them negotiate licenses, Mr. Chiu has handled many patent infringement actions in federal courts across the country and before the International Trade Commission (ITC). His patent litigation successes include several complete defense victories for his clients after trial and on summary judgment. He also helps clients develop offensive and defensive patent strategies by providing opinions, handling contested Patent Office proceedings, and managing patent portfolio development.
Prior to joining K&L Gates, Mr. Chiu was intellectual property and litigation counsel in the Hong Kong and Los Angeles offices of another international law firm.
