At his previous firm, Ken was the founder and managing partner of the firm’s Shanghai office for five years, and has counseled clients on IP issues in the Asia-Pacific region for nearly 15 years.  Ken’s experience in Asia and his relationships with foreign law firms further the interests of his U.S. and European-based clients with business or litigation interests in Asia.  Ken also has substantial experience drafting and negotiating supply agreements and other cross-border transactions, especially those involving the transfer of intellectual property or technology.  Ken has litigated disputes concerning semiconductor processing and equipment, circuitry design, software, chemicals, and medical devices both in Federal Court and before the U.S. International Trade Commission.

Prior to law school, Ken was a research associate at the University of Texas Health Science Center, developing skills in DNA and protein analysis, working with transgenic models, and conducting research in cardiovascular shock and mechanisms of vascular dilation/constriction. Following his undergraduate education, Ken also worked with the United States Air Force examining the physiological effects of exposure to radiofrequency radiation.
