KCP LAW is joined by Standard (Shang De) Law Office, KCP Law office, and Ever Light International Intellectual Property Rights Office.
Standard (Shang De) Law office was founded by Attorney Kuo Lingyung in Taichung in 1980. At a time where most law firms were named after individuals, Attorney Kuo had long been driven by the vision to build a law firm that is based on sustainable operation management, and firmly believes that lawyers should uphold the highest standard of ethics, and thereby, naming its law firm “Shang De”. For over 40 years since the start of the firm, Attorney Kuo had been elected Legislator for two consecutive terms, and was also named deputy minister of the Executive Yuan, but “Shang De” never ceases to abide by the core value with which this firm was built on. Attorney Kuo has always taken delight in helping newly grads and attorneys and have stayed in touch all the attorneys formerly worked at the firm.
Ever Light International Intellectual Property Rights Office was established in 1997, presided by partner Attorney K.C. Chen. Attorney Chen has a Master Degree in Biochemistry from National Yang-Ming University and a Law Degree from Taiwan University. With background in both chemical engineering and law, and as a certified medical technologist, Attorney Chen has worked in biotech companies gaining deep industry experience in the field of biochemistry. During his 10 years of practice, he has focused on patent, trademark, copyright and trade secret litigations, and specializes in patent drafting, claim construction, analysis and infringement evaluation.
In early 2014, after years of cooperation, Shang De Law Office and Ever Light have decided to merge into KCP LAW, through the consolidation of both firm’s resources and experiences, we aim to provide high quality and comprehensive legal services to our clients.
In May, 2015, KCP LAW's Taichung office has moved to a business building located on Taiwan Blvd. Taichung City.
