"From my 6 months Relevant Legal Training with Alpha & Omega Law Corporation, I have understood that in order to be a good IP practitioner a lot of ground work has to be done and the planning for the client starts with a good filing in order to maximize right for IP enforcement. Whatever that is submitted during the prosecution stage of an application could have repercussions during the enforcement stage. I have also understood that there are also various trade mark enforcement strategies that are equally important when a client expands its IP into other countries and jurisdiction. Apart from having good counterpart associates in other jurisdictions, we as IP practitioners should also equip ourselves with the iP knowledge of other jurisdiction to share with our clients. My personal goal during my next 6 month practice training with the firm is to gain that expertise which would bring benefit to our firm and our clients." - Lee Kwok Loong
