I am honored to be selected for the IAM Strategy 300 for the sixth straight year.
I greatly appreciate IAM, as well as my clients, colleagues, and friends for their trust ! I especially thank to my US and China teams for helping me create a one-of-a-kind patent litigation practice.
When I left my very good in-house position at Qualcomm a little over five years ago with no clients, things could have gone horribly wrong. There have been hiccups, of course, but I during this period, I have been honored to work with the top patent litigators in the world. What started as a limited IP practice focused only in China has become a worldwide patent litigation and licensing practice focusing on the US, China, and Germany.
With the growth of litigation funding for US patent litigation and fair judges like those in the Western and Eastern Districts of Texas, the US part of my practice has continued to flourish. The magic, though, is combining US, Chinese, and German patent law into a worldwide enforcement campaign. Successful patent enforcement is no longer limited to one or even two countries. Rather, it is a vital part of business planning, and can require access to unfamiliar jurisdictions. As the world gets smaller and smaller, I have been honored to help clients successfully litigate in the US, Mainland China, Taiwan, Germany, France, Brazil, Vietnam, Singapore, and Italy.
I love what I do, and although that is generally enough, I appreciate the occasional accolade from great folks like IAM to substantiate that I am making a difference. I owe all of my partners, associates, assistants, friends, and clients for supporting me over the years, and especially during this horrid 2020. Here's to a better year next year, and to great patents and technology!
