Dr Chong-Yee Khoo has been invited to be part of an expert panel on Asia Pacific Intellectual Property at this year’s CIPA Life Sciences Conference.
Chong-Yee will cover biotech patent law in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and Japan.
The Asia Pacific IP Panel aims to inform delegates about the boundaries of protection and main issues that may arise in life sciences patent cases in the various jurisdictions. Topics for discussion include:
- Method of treatment and second medical use (“Swiss format”) claims and latest legal decisions
- Changes in the law that affect biotech and pharma claiming and enforcement
- Patent term extension regulations in the region
- Are gene and protein sequences patentable per se?
- Are there any moves to require disclosure of origin for genetic material?
Dr Chong-Yee Khoo has once again been recognised by Intellectual Asset Management (IAM), one of the world’s leading IP publications.
The IAM Patent 1000 - The World’s Leading Patent Professionals is a unique guide, published annually, that identifies the top patent professionals in key jurisdictions around the globe.
Chong-Yee has been listed in IAM Patent 1000 2017 as a recommended individual in Singapore. His citation reads:

He is a fine patent attorney too, qualified in the United Kingdom and at the European Patent Office, and the first Singaporean patent attorney to qualify by examination.”
