Register Trademark In China
Innovation hasn’t started yet in the China legal system. Based on legal reports, there were 79 online legal marketplaces/legal service websites established in China from 2007-2017.
The number of legal innovation companies is below:
2007 – 2011: 7
In 2015 Tencent and Alibaba invested in 2 companies. In 2016 Baidu invested in 1 company.
2016 the trend went down, and the market became cold. The peak of the capital investment passed. No one did anything new since 2016.
10% of the companies are gone since 2016.
The one Tencent invested, yingle.com, they tried to compete in the market using flat fee/low price/template base/online consultation and pushed the uber lawyer idea. They developed fast in from 2015 to 2016 after two rounds of investment. For the investment, they only raised a few million dollars. Compared to other industries in China this is nothing. They managed to have 20K lawyers listed on their site in 2016 then they failed in 2017.
ClearWay Law is focused on helping foreign companies come to China instead of serving the Chinese legal market.
