IP Spotlight: Collaboration in Action

In a highly competitive market among the best of the best, there are differences. The Morrison & Foerster difference — what sets the firm’s IP practice apart from other firms — is a decidedly collaborative IP team of litigators and prosecutors, working together to win the highest-profile, highest-stakes cases.
 
Come join us to hear about this collaboration in action from two partners who have worked together on high profile patent litigation cases at Morrison & Foerster:  Rich Hung, deputy chair of the IP Litigation Practice, and Peter Yim, head of the Electronics, Software & Telecommunications Patent Prosecution Group.  Mr. Hung and Mr. Yim will discuss their paths to their respective practices and how they work together to bring successful results for their clients.  We will also highlight our 1L Summer Associate opportunity: The Two-Summer Patent Program.

Date: Monday, January 23, 2017
Time: 12:10-1:10 PM
