Vinson & Elkins’ Taiwan practice complements and augments our strong Asian presence by providing Taiwanese companies with litigation, transactional and strategic legal counseling support in complex intellectual property and corporate matters in the U.S.

We have extensive experience representing Taiwanese companies in a range of industries, including:

  • technology and computer hardware and software
  • electronics, semiconductors and integrated circuits 
  • pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and medical devices 
  • telecommunications 
  • petrochemicals and
  • energy, including solar. 

Our IP litigators have an outstanding track record of success in competitor “bet the product line” and “bet the company” litigation, as well as against Non-Practicing Entities (NPEs) or “patent trolls” in U.S. state and federal courts and before the International Trade Commission (ITC). We combine world class, leading patent litigation with substantial technical knowledge as many of our technology and IP lawyers have degrees and/or industry experience in electrical, chemical and mechanical engineering, computer science, physics, life sciences and biotechnology. With a team strategically located across the U.S. and Asia, our attorneys are well positioned and experienced to assist our Taiwan-based clients with all facets of their intellectual property development, management and protection. 

We are also able to draw on the full capability of the global V&E team to address issues related to antitrust, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), government and internal investigations, arbitration, tax, finance, mergers and acquisitions, private equity, joint ventures, development projects, and other transactions.

Our Taiwan practice is further strengthened by our Mandarin and Taiwanese language capabilities, including the ability to negotiate, draft, and translate Chinese legal documents.
