He had tried more than 2,000 IP cases, including civil cases regarding patents, trademarks, copyright, trade secrets and unfair competition disputes, as well as administrative cases regarding patent re-examination, patent invalidation, trademark re-examination and trademark invalidation, many of which had a profound impact on the IP industry practice. Dr Liu especially specialises in cases regarding SEPs, pharmaceutical patents, trademarks and trade secrets.
