“Our clients have seen the importance of having a truly global presence in handling IP issues. Despite the economic uncertainty of the moment, China will continue to play a major role in IP matters. We’re very happy to have Jason join our team of leading IP attorneys who know how to handle China-related questions,” said Michael Moradzadeh, Rimon’s CEO.
