An Interview with Tommy Wang
How did you choose to practice in intellectual-property (IP) litigation? Is there anything that or anyone who drew you into this area?
As a trained biochemist and having worked as a clinical researcher at the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Pennsylvania, I have always had a fascination with science and technology. During the time I worked as a clinical researcher, a mentor of mine, Dr. Paul Lotke, MD (a pioneer orthopaedic surgeon) helped me understand the importance of medical technology and the role patents play in the field. As I discovered these advancements in medical technology, I became more interested in patents and the IP field in general. Eventually, I went to law school to pursue a career in IP law.
