GRAND RAPIDS (May, 2018) –Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn, LLP announced recently that Weber Hsiao has joined the firm as a senior attorney in its Intellectual Property department and Patent practice group in the firm’s Grand Rapids office.

Hsiao advises clients on a full range of IP matters, including IP protection and IP disputes, and counsels clients on IP due diligence in M&A transactions. He joins Honigman from Brown Rudnick LLP’s Boston office, where he focused his practice on medical and high-tech inventions.
