Richard Hung spoke toThe AmLaw Litigation Dailyfor its Litigation Leaders series, discussing the strengths of MoFo’s litigation work, some of the department’s recent successes, and the decision to integrate litigation boutique Durie Tangri into the firm at the start of 2023.
“My own electrical engineering background hints at this and perhaps biases my outlook, but I believe [MoFo’s litigators have] a significant competitive edge in technology matters,” Rich said. “More than 130 of our lawyers and patent agents have technical degrees and experience as engineers and other technical professions. This allows us to analyze our clients’ claims and defenses, especially in the high-tech and life sciences areas, with an eye to what they need for business success. Our understanding of technology also helps us break down complicated issues into digestible chunks, which is critical to persuading judges and juries.”
