DCC’s new Hong Kong office will be led by new managing principal Owen Gee, who brings almost two decades of experience to the firm, having previously worked at a number of other IP firms.

Mr Gee has over 18 years of experience as an IP practitioner, including 14 years with IP firms in Hong Kong. He is also a registered patent attorney in both Australia and New Zealand, as well as a registered trademarks attorney in Australia.

Intellectual property group QANTM, which owns DCC, said they were particularly excited about the new office.


“This new business in Hong Kong is aligned with QANTM’s growth strategy in the Asia-Pacific region. DCC has a long history of assisting clients to protect their rights in Hong Kong through its trusted associates. Now with its own Hong Kong office, DCC gives its clients direct access to this important market and has an opportunity to service Hong Kong businesses directly,” QANTM chief executive Craig Dower said.

“Other QANTM Group businesses will also be able to refer clients to DCC Hong Kong.”

DCC Group managing principal Michael Wolnizer said that the new office was an important part of the firm’s growth strategy.

“Opening an office in Hong Kong expands DCC’s footprint in the Asia-Pacific region. It allows us to assist our local and overseas clients in this important and growing market, and this expansion fits in well with our strategy to be able to offer our clients broad experience and on-the-ground expertise across Asia-Pacific,” he said.

“Having grown up in Hong Kong, I have a special affinity with the region, and I am excited to be sharing this news.”

This news follows the firm’s 2022 promotions round, whereby DCC appointed two new principals and seven others across both its law firm and its patent and trademarks attorney firm.
