A law firm has added a new attorney to its local office.
Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn said this spring it hired Weber Hsiao as a senior attorney for its intellectual property department and patent practice group.
Out of Grand Rapids, Hsiao will advise clients on IP matters, which includes IP protection and IP disputes. He will also counsel clients on IP due diligence in merger and acquisition transactions.
Most recently, he worked at Brown Rudnick in Boston.
“Weber’s knowledge of the advancements within the medical tech and high-tech fields makes him a perfect fit for our growing IP platform in Grand Rapids,” said Tracy Larsen, managing partner of Honigman’s Grand Rapids office. “Weber’s arrival is another great example of the high-caliber talent that the firm continues to attract from large money-center firms.”
Hsiao is the 34th IP attorney to join Honigman in West Michigan and the seventh IP attorney at its Grand Rapids office.
Since Honigman opened its Grand Rapids office, it has grown from two to 18 legal professionals.
Hsiao earned his J.D. from the University of New Hampshire School of Law in 2006, and he holds a B.S. in biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
