WASHINGTON, D.C.—Perkins Coie is pleased to announce that partners Ngai Zhang and Drew Schulte have joined the firm’s expanding Intellectual Property (IP) practice in the Washington, D.C., and New York offices, respectively. Ngai and Drew counsel on strategic patent prosecution with a focus on the software and financial technology sectors.
The firm’s internationally recognized IP practice has grown significantly in recent years to more than 250 attorneys and patent agents in the United States and Asia. Ngai and Drew’s additions come after partner Lori Gordon, a seasoned IP litigator focused on inter partes reviews (IPRs), joined the firm’s Washington, D.C., office in June.
Ngai focuses his practice on internet and technology law, including patents, trademarks, open source, technology transactions, user agreements, and contests and sweepstakes.
With extensive experience before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and the European Patent Office, Drew has focused his practice in recent years on the dynamic fields of AI/ML and fintech.
