Areas of Practice: Patent, Trademarks, Civil Litigation, Intellectual Property Litigation.
Gloria had the opportunity to specialize in the niche area of Medical Law during her early years of practice which provided her with experience in litigation and dispute resolution.
She gradually develops an interest in Intellectual Property Law with a particular focus on trade mark matters after handling her first trade mark opposition matter and managing clients' trade mark registration portfolios since early 2014.
Gloria spearheaded the Intellectual Property Law Practice at a medium size law firm and led a small team to offer a range of legal services to clients on the protection and enforcement of Intellectual Property rights prior to joining Kelvin Chia Partnership in 2018.
She has experience advising local and international clients across various industries on trade mark and patent registrations as well as drafting and reviewing of agreements relating to Intellectual Property assets which include sale and transfer, licensing, franchising and confidentiality. For contentious matters, Gloria handles disputes involving infringement of trade marks and copyright and trade mark opposition proceedings.
Gloria gained practical knowledge and experience in copyright matters through her passion for writing and publication, having being an award-winning student journalist with the Chinese media group of a listed media organization in Singapore. She was also one of the youngest authors to publish a Chinese book in the country and served as the Chief Editor of the official publication of a law student organization during her school days.
Gloria has been serving on the Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee of the Law Society of Singapore since January 2016.
