Marcus Woo rejoins Perkins Coie; will soon be part of firm’s Taipei office

Perkins Coie has announced that Marcus Woo has rejoined the firm in New York as a partner in the firm’s intellectual property practice; he will be reassigned to the firm’s Taipei office once local registration documents are completed. Woo was most recently vice president and general counsel of HTC Corporation in Taipei.

In returning to Perkins Coie, Woo will focus his practice on representing clients in Taiwan and beyond on intellectual property and corporate matters, including U.S. IP litigation work for Taiwanese companies.

At HTC, Woo oversaw the company’s litigation and transactions and managed a legal team of more than 50 staff across the company’s corporate and M&A, litigation and licensing, and patent prosecution and management areas. He also oversaw global legal affairs for HTC Europe, HTC America and subsidiaries in China. During his career, Woo has represented telecommunications, information technology and electronics, entertainment software, airlines and aerospace, and industrial and consumer product clients in intellectual property protection and management and technology licensing matters. He is a former Perkins Coie partner, former vice president and general counsel at Chunghwa Picture Tubes, former group general counsel at the Tatung Group and a former partner at Jones Day.

“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 Perkins Coie’s IP practice. “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 U.S. and international clients.”
