Huong Nguyen is counsel in the Intellectual Property Litigation Practice Group in the Palo Alto office of Haynes and Boone. Her practice focuses on the pharmaceutical industry.

Prior to joining Haynes and Boone, Huong spent a decade in-house at a specialty pharmaceutical company, where her most recent position was leading their corporate and intellectual property litigation and investigation practice. While in-house, Huong gained a deep understanding of the business of developing, manufacturing, and selling pharmaceutical drug products. That experience widely ranges from product adoption, development, and filing of applications to the Food and Drug Administration, to brand and generic patent litigation and proceedings before the Patent and Trademark Appeals Board, as well as to regulatory approval, marketing, and commercial launch of the drug products.

In addition to intellectual property and regulatory matters, she has led teams on securities and antitrust litigation and investigation (both criminal and civil) relating to generic drug products. On these matters, she has appeared before the Federal Trade Commission, State Attorney Generals, and the Department of Justice.

Huong recently helped a pro bono client secure guardianship of her grandson following a contested court hearing in October 2017.
