U.S. firm Perkins Coie has welcomed back Marcus Woo as a partner from Taiwanese mobile phone manufacturer HTC Corporation, where he was vice president and general counsel. Initially based in New York, Woo will move to Taipei once registration formalities are completed.

At the firm, Woo will represent clients in Taiwan and beyond on intellectual property and corporate matters, including U.S. IP litigation work for Taiwanese companies.

Woo initially worked for eight years at Perkins Coie, joining the firm in 1993. He left in 2001 to spend another eight years with Jones Day, before holding senior in-house roles at Taiwanese companies Tatung Group and Chunghwa Picture Tubes. Woo joined HTC in 2014.
