“My client’s problem is my problem”

Kin always puts himself in the client’s shoes when handling IP matters, aiming to achieve the best possible outcome for the client.

During his Ph.D. candidature, he was attached to the Adelaide Auto-ID Laboratory, with his research specialising in the areas of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) system and network, High Frequency (HF) and Ultra High Frequency (UHF) antenna designs for RFID applications, electromagnetic compatibility relating to RFID standards and regulations, RFID reader synchronisation, deployment and optimisation, and studies on electromagnetic simulation and modelling.

With a strong technical background, Kin strives to understand the client’s invention thoroughly prior to advising the best IP protection strategy, and prior to drafting a patent specification for the invention. Kin has experience in managing companies’ patent portfolio and in preparing IP budget.

Kin is also trained in trade mark prosecution, thus allowing him to provide a complete IP package advice (patent, trade mark and design) to any client.

Outside work, Kin Seong enjoys reading Chinese literature and English fantasy stories. He is also a chess enthusiast, a frequent moviegoer and a fan of computer related technologies.

Kin is a member of our China Team, which provides specialist filing and prosecution services for patents, trade marks and designs in China, as well as strategic IP advice for that jurisdiction.
