Who's Who Legal Patents

Elliot Papageorgiou advises international companies and brands on contentious and non-contentious IP issues, with a special focus on business-centric IP (and especially patent) portfolio development, strategic and cross-border IP enforcement and litigation involving China and the Asia-Pacific. He has managed a range of strategic patent, trademark and copyright projects for multinational clients. His client briefs include developing IP strategies for one of Europe’s largest VC funds, for global automotive technology companies, global engineering and manufacturing conglomerates, as well as some of Europe’s best-known FCMG and jewellery brands.

A selection of significant successes include winning ‘patent claw-back’ litigation for one of Europe’s largest engineering groups; winning patent defence litigation before the Supreme People’s Court for one of Europe’s largest engineering companies; advising one of Europe’s largest venture capital funds on strategic China IP acquisitions for its invested companies; winning numerous patent infringement lawsuits for a global infrastructure engineering group in China and across the Asia-Pacific; winning patent, utility model and design infringement lawsuits for a global filtration company; developing a Chinese freedom-to-operate and IP strategy for one of Europe’s largest automotive parts suppliers, including IP mapping and competitor-threat analyses.

Elliot is a native speaker of a number of European languages including German, Serbian, Croatian and Hungarian. He is also fluent in English. While his Mandarin is improving, it still remains a “work in progress”. Elliot is a solicitor (England and Wales), an attorney-at-Law (NY), and barrister and solicitor (Vic), with BCom BEc (Murdoch) LLB Honours (Monash) and BCL Honours (St Catherine’s College, University of Oxford) degrees.

WWL says: Elliot Papageorgiou is well regarded among market sources, one of whom notes: "He has an impressive ability to really understand his client's business and commercial needs."
