Ardent has a very active US-Asia practice. We represent a wide variety of clients based out of China, Korea and Taiwan seeking U.S. representation in their legal needs. From business litigation to corporate/business transactions to patent/trademark matters, we offer essential services that are necessary for any foreign based company to succeed in the U.S. Market. Many of our Attorneys are highly qualified attorneys selected as Rising Stars by Super Lawyers Magazine (2.5% of California Attorneys) and/or Top Lawyers of Orange County by OC Metro Magazine and/or received 10/10 Rating from AVVO.com. We have dedicated attorneys and staff personnel who are both fluent in Korean, Mandarin Chinese and Taiwanese and understand the culture in which our Korea, China and Taiwan based clients operate. Indeed, our attorneys in our US-Asia practice group travel often to China, Korea and Taiwan to provide informative seminars and counsel to our Chinese, Korean and Taiwanese clientele. ::Business/Commercial Litigation:: In this global economy, cross-border transactions often result in disputes. At Ardent, our lawyers assist our clients in assessing their legal risks and liabilities before problems emerge. When business conflict inevitably arises, our team of professionals has the experience to tackle complex cross-border issues and resolve them through settlement negotiations, litigation or through various forms of alternative dispute resolution including arbitration and mediation. Our team of lawyers has handled all areas of business litigation from collections to breach of contract to products liability/breach of warranty. ::Corporate/Business Transactions:: From mergers & acquisitions to securities law to general corporate/business/contract/employment matters, our corporate/business transactions group ensures our Asian based companies successfully operate business in the United States and that they are in compliance with the U.S. corporate, securities and employment laws. We also provide counsel and guidance on many cross-border transactions between Asian clients and the United States. ::Patent Registration and Patent Litigation:: China, Korea and Taiwan based companies trust our attorneys to defend them in both ITC (International Trade Commission) Proceedings and U.S. Federal Courts dealing with Patent Infringement. They do so because our patent attorneys have the technical knowledge and litigation experience to both understand complex technologies and the procedures of the U.S. court and government proceedings. Our patent attorneys in our US-Asian Practice Group are fluent in Korean, Mandarin and Taiwanese, which allows us to effectively communicate better with our Korean, Chinsese and Taiwanese clients on important legal issues & strategy. We specialize in representing respondents/defendants in both ITC Proceedings and Patent Infringement Lawsuits in Federal Courts all across the United States. In addition, our patent litigators provide seminars to our China, Korea and Taiwan based clients to educate them on U.S. Patent laws which prevent possible infringement issues before they occur.  Many of our patent attorneys in our US-Asia Practice Group are former USPTO Patent Examiners with technical degrees. Selected one of the top Patent & Trademark firms of 2010 by IP Today Magazine, our patent attorneys handle the registration of a wide variety of technologies including semiconductors, medical devices, software, business methods and mechanical devices.
