在加入奥睿以前，马律师在美国一家特殊玻璃与陶瓷材料制造企业担任亚洲地区知识产权总监。在此之前，他是伊利诺伊州芝加哥市的McAndrews, Held & Malloy律师事务所的合伙人及董事会成员。他是该所的第一个非美国人律师。
Ethan Ma, a partner and the chief representative in Orrick’s Shanghai office, has more than 14 years of experience assisting clients in intellectual property-related matters, including IP litigation before the US International Trade Commission (ITC) and the federal courts.
Ma has represented dozens of Chinese companies in resolving their IP disputes in the US, and earned client’s long-term trust. During his years in private practice, Ma and his litigation teams successfully handled a number of high profile ITC investigations involving Chinese companies. In one investigation, his clients were four subsidiaries of a large Chinese state-owned company, which were sued for patent infringement. The commission reversed the late Chief Administrative Law Judge’s decision and found that Ma’s clients were not infringing and did not violate Section 337. In another investigation, he represented the complainant and its subsidiaries in China which were suing a group of Chinese respondents for trade secret misappropriation. The ITC issued a 10-year exclusion order against these respondents. This landmark decision represented a new development of trade secret law and ITC jurisdiction in the US, and was upheld by the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
Ma’s most recent ITC cases include representing a Chinese respondent in 337-TA-985 involving surgical stapler devices, and a Chinese respondent and its US distributor in 337-TA-1015 involving hand dryers. Apart from ITC investigations, he also represents clients in US district court cases. For example, he currently represents another Chinese client in two cases before the US District Court for the Central District of California suing a US defendant for infringing a utility patent and a design patent. His recent work on strategic transactions include assisting JD.com to form a strategic alliance with Walmart and assisting Baidu in its US$150 million joint investment in Velodyne LiDAR together with Ford.
Prior to joining Orrick, Ma served as director of IP, Asia at a world-leading company in specialty glass and ceramics. Before that, he was a partner and member of the board at McAndrews, Held & Malloy in Chicago. Ma was the first non-US born lawyer of that firm.
