Richard Hing, Senior Associate (New Zealand qualified), IP and Technology, Protection and Enforcement, Fieldfisher

I am a Senior Associate (New Zealand Qualified) in the IP team at Fieldfisher.

I have particular expertise in a wide range of trade mark, design and domain name matters, including prosecution, enforcement, border protection and opposition, revocation and invalidity actions.  I advise clients on pre-filing trade mark and design matters through to post-registration actions.  

I work with clients in a wide range of sectors, including video games, entertainment, industrial equipment, apparel, fashion, technology, software and retail.  Recent examples of work include: advising a well-known apparel company on design rights before the General Court and Court of Justice of the European Union, leading negotiations on behalf of a prominent video game developer in a set of related trade mark oppositions involving over 15 EU member states, and acting for a leading UK based retailer in a number of successful domain name proceedings before the World Intellectual Property Organization. 

Prior to joining Fieldfisher in June 2011, I worked for a specialist intellectual property firm in New Zealand and have also practiced at a leading firm in Sydney, Australia.

Outside of work, I can be found playing basketball and touch rugby.  I am also a keen supporter of the All Blacks.
