Tom Chen in World IP Review: 'Dispelling Myths During AAPI Heritage Month'

May 06, 2021
Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month is celebrated in May and recognises the contributions and influence of AAPI Americans to the history, culture, and achievements of the U.S.

My parents were first generation Chinese immigrants, and this month is a good time to take stock of how our community is faring in the legal industry and at large law firms such as the one I am a member of.

At Haynes and Boone, a firm of 600 lawyers, I have been privileged to receive opportunities that have helped me become a partner in the IP practice. I also serve as a member of the executive committee, on the board of directors, and as co-chair of the firm’s attorney diversity, equity and inclusion committee.
