Lloyd is recognized as a 'leading IP lawyer in Japan' by all the major legal directories

Chambers Asia-Pacific 2019

Lloyd Parker is Regional Managing Partner, Asia-Pacific, and as a member of the firm's leadership team, is focused on achieving the firm's strategy in Asia-Pacific. Lloyd is also Head of our Intellectual Property, Media and Technology Practice Group in Asia-Pacific, and Office Managing Partner, Tokyo.

Lloyd’s combination of experience in a variety of legal areas and business across a number of jurisdictions is a key differentiator which clients appreciate as he develops creative and commercial solutions to help clients achieve their legal and commercial objectives. In his early years as a lawyer Lloyd worked in litigation (including as an Associate to a Justice of the Supreme Court of Queensland), commercial/corporate, competition law and a wide variety of intellectual property laws. Building on his previous business studies in Australia and Japan, he then worked as a management consultant at one of the world’s most famous management consultancy firms. Returning to law he proceeded to focus on intellectual property.

As leader of the region's Intellectual Property, Media and Technology Practice Group, Lloyd takes an innovative and client-led approach to problem solving. As one example, Lloyd created, and is leading our Total Brand Care concept which is designed to assist our clients in commercializing and protecting the value and reputation of a company and their brands.

Today, with over 25 years of experience as an intellectual property lawyer, Lloyd is recognized by every independent legal directory as a “leading IP lawyer in Japan.”

Lloyd provides trademark portfolio management and enforcement counsel to clients in a broad range of industries and regularly works with the firm's global offices to offer multi-jurisdictional trademark advice (contentious and non-contentious) to clients.

Lloyd is also active in our Diversity & Inclusion and citizenship activities. For a number of years he has been leading our relationship with, and assistance to the Japanese Para-Sports Association and the Japan Riding Association for the Disabled.

Based in Tokyo, Lloyd has more than 35 years' association with Japan (including living and working in Japan for over 20 years). He is fluent in Japanese. He studied Japanese in Japan for two years—one year at Doshisha University and one year at Kyoto University of Foreign Studies.
