RHTLaw Taylor Wessing is pleased to announce the promotions of Jack Ow as a Partner in our Intellectual Property & Technology Practice, and Napolean Koh as a Partner in our Litigation & Dispute Resolution Practice with effect from 1 July 2016.
Jack handles a broad spectrum of intellectual property and technology matters. He regularly advises on technology transactions, data protection, cyber security and regulatory compliance, especially for info-communication and technology (ICT) industries. As a Certified Information Privacy Technologist (CIPT) accredited by IAPP and having a keen interest in ICT developments, Jack believes in seeking customised legal solutions that take into account the challenges in design, deployment and auditing of IT products and services, while balancing the role that technology companies increasingly fill as arbiters of trust in today’s data-driven global economy.
Napolean’s main areas of practice encompass both front-end advisory work for various construction, infrastructure and energy-related projects, as well as contentious work involving owner-developers, consultants and contractors at various stages of proceedings and forums. Napolean strongly believes that dispute resolution mechanisms and choice of forum issues should be carefully considered and crafted at an early stage, in order that client’s interests and rights are protected and not prejudiced in any way.
RHTLaw Taylor Wessing congratulates our client, Putien for being awarded one star in the Michelin Guide Singapore 2016 for their Kitchener Road branch.
We are proud to serve a Michelin star restaurant in Singapore.

RHT i-Assets Advisory (“RHT i-Assets”), a full service Intellectual Property advisory and a subsidiary of RHT Holdings, announced that its Chief Executive Officer, Dr Jasmine Kway, has once again been named among the world’s leading Intellectual Property (IP) strategists in the 2016 edition of IAM Strategy 300 — The World’s Leading IP Strategists. Published annually by Intellectual Asset Management (IAM), the guide recognises IP professionals from around the world for their best-in-class expertise that maximise the value of their clients’ IP portfolios.
As a one-stop IP practice, RHT i-Assets works closely with companies and public institutions throughout their IP value chain, from creation to commercialisation and monetisation. Helmed by senior industry experts, the practice assists companies in Singapore and the region to commercialise their technology to entrench their market position. RHT i-Assets is a subsidiary of RHT Holdings, a leading professional services firm in Asia.
This year marks the fourth consecutive year that Jasmine has been named to the IAM Strategy 300. With her depth of experience formulating and implementing national IP policies and driving corporate IP strategies, Jasmine has advised and helped her clients derive maximum economic value from their IP rights.
“I am thankful and encouraged to be recognised and included once again in the IAM Strategy 300,” Dr Jasmine Kway commented.
“It is an honour to be amongst the world’s pre-eminent IP strategists. With IP increasingly being viewed as a business asset of fundamental importance, more companies are seeking out strategists who can rightly identify and advise them on the opportunities that their IP presents. Most importantly, companies are also seeking strategists who are able to help them monetise their IP assets in new markets and new applications,” she added.
"The IP market is becoming increasingly international, with companies across the world now focusing on creating maximum value from the assets that they own. That makes IP strategists more important than they have ever been before,"IAM editor Joff Wild noted.
The IAM research team spoke to a wide range of senior corporate IP managers in North America, Europe and Asia, as well as third-party IP service providers, in order to identify IP professionals whose strategies enabled IP owners to gain maximum value from their portfolios. Only those individuals nominated multiple times by different parties as outstanding IP strategists are listed in the IAM Strategy 300.
