Winkler Partners was founded in 2002 as the first law firm to operate as a partnership between Taiwanese and foreign attorneys. We offer clients a full range of legal services spanning intellectual property, data protection, dispute resolution, employment and corporate law. We also provide clients with unmatched legal translation services and IP prosecution services. Find out more about the services we offer and how we can help.
Since the beginning, we’ve strived to provide clear, creative, solutions-oriented service for clients at home and abroad. Many of our clients find our work particularly helpful in matters that have a transnational aspect, with our firm bringing together Taiwanese and international expertise at all levels, from the partners to the support staff. Currently, we have lawyers admitted in Taiwan, California, New York, the District of Columbia and Hong Kong. Five countries are represented and five languages are spoken across our legal and support staff. We have been awarded Employer of Choice several years running by Asian Legal Business Magazine and have been featured in their Diversity List for 2016 and 2017. Meet the team.
In an increasingly globalized world, we recognize the importance of networks, which is why we are a member of Interlaw, a community of independent law firms. By leveraging Interlaw’s reach in over 150 cities worldwide, we have the capability and resources to quickly mobilize lawyers globally to support even the most complex client projects. Learn more about Interlaw.
We also recognize that our colleagues and the community within which we operate are essential to our commitment to our clients and our long-term viability. We aim to:
- provide the highest quality of legal services to our clients,
- foster a culture of openness and growth for all of our colleagues, and
- contribute concretely to our community through traditional pro bono work and support for responsible social initiatives.
Known for breaking the mold, we were also the first law firm in Asia to become a certified B Corporation, strengthening our commitment to our community and the environment. Learn more about our Community initiatives here.
