Zhu focuses on cross-border intellectual property litigation and counseling in US federal courts and before the US International Trade Commission.
He previously worked at Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner in San Francisco where he was partner.
Jami McKeon, chair of Morgan Lewis, said: “Shaobin Zhu’s presence in Shanghai helps us continue and build upon our strong relationships with companies in China involved in litigation in US courts or who require counseling on administrative or regulatory matters.”
“His arrival marks another significant step in solidifying our deep commitment to clients in Asia and builds on our recent expansion in China.”
Eric Kraeutler, head of Morgan Lewis’s IP practice said: “Shaobin will be a significant asset for Chinese clients with interests in the United States, as well as for US and non-Chinese clients seeking to acquire and protect intellectual property rights within China.”
“He possesses the ideal combination of skills and background to provide all these companies the highest level of service.”
