With a Ph.D. in organic chemistry, Yuezhong Feng is used to handling challenging subject matter. He puts his technical knowledge to work litigating complex patent, Hatch-Waxman (ANDA), trade secret, International Trade Commission Section 337, and USPTO post-grant (inter partes review) cases, as well as guiding clients through the patent process. He also counsels clients on all aspects of U.S. intellectual property laws.

As co-chair of the firm’s China task force, Yuezhong often works with Chinese businesses entering the U.S. market. He excels at helping these clients bridge the gap between Chinese business and legal cultures and those found in the United States. As a result, companies in diverse industries rely on him to help maximize profit and reduce risk at every step of the patent process, from identifying patentable inventions to developing prosecution strategies, to portfolio management and monetization, to enforcement. Due to his deep understanding of Chinese markets, Yuezhong frequently assists U.S. and European companies with intellectual property issues in China.

Yuezhong has helped companies seek patent protection in more than 100 countries. In preparing patent applications, he thinks forward toward how to achieve consistent protection in global markets worldwide.

Yuezhong has particular experience in the chemical, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, biopharma, nanotechnology, electrical vehicles, chemical engineering (particularly bio-fuels and bio-diesels), mechanical (particularly home appliances and e-cigarettes), and electrical engineering (particularly telecommunication and liquid-crystal display devices) arts.

Prior to joining Crowell & Moring, he was a shareholder at Brinks Gilson & Lione.
