Chew to lead China office for Haseltine Lake
Daniel Chew has become partner lead at Haseltine Lake for China and Southeast Asia.

He is a frequent visitor to Asia with a focus on clients in China, Taiwan and the wider Southeast Asia region.

Chew specialises in electronic patent matters, with particular expertise in mobile and communication system inventions.

He is experienced in drafting and prosecuting patent applications in technical areas, including mobile and wireless communications systems, software business methods and video and speech processing.

Lesley Evans, chief executive of Haseltine Lake, said: “China is an important part of our growth strategy. We have been investing there for some years now and are seeing a good flow of work from both clients in Europe seeking protection for their IP in China and from clients in China looking to protect their IP as they enter new European markets.”

“Daniel Chew understands the needs of both these client groups really well and has a clear strategic vision for how we can enhance and develop our service offering to them.”
