jejim /

Perkins Coie has brought former partner Marcus Woo back to the firm from Taiwanese electronics manufacturer HTC, where he served as general counsel.

Woo will be based in the firm’s Taipei office, where his work will include handling US IP litigation for Taiwanese companies.

As vice president and general counsel of HTC, he led the firm’s IP global strategy, including for its US, European, and Chinese subsidiaries. During his time in private practice, including his first spell at Perkins Coie, he has represented clients in industries such as telecommunications, information technology, aerospace, and entertainment software.

“We're very excited to welcome Marcus back to Perkins Coie. Marcus brings with him high-level experience managing complex IP issues for HTC,” said Shannon Bloodworth, co-chair of the firm’s IP practice.

Bloodworth added: “His practice stretches beyond IP, to include all aspects of representing technology clients, including technology and corporate transactions and litigation. The experience that Marcus brings will significantly benefit our US and international clients.”

"Marcus's familiarity and long experience of working across Taiwan and China’s business sectors will benefit sophisticated clients operating in both markets and internationally,” said Matt Bernstein, co-managing partner of Perkins Coie’s Taipei office.

"In addition to IP matters, Marcus also has experience in corporate law and mergers and acquisitions transactions, as well as antitrust counsel and compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. We’re thrilled Marcus decided to re-join our team,” Bernstein added.
