HJM Asia Law 1
In this case, Caroline Berube, Managing Partner of HJM Asia Law discusses a challenge recently involving a big U.S. client who was visiting Beijing, China. He had a patent infringement case and he needed legal representation. Two of her firm's lawyers were to represent him. Both were trained in North American but were of different nationalities. It was thought to be a good match. The two colleagues went to the client. In the middle of the afternoon the client called and said, 'listen, I think one of your lawyers is corrupt and he is getting money from the company that is infringing my patent. I do not want him anymore.' So what should Caroline Berube do? Visit casenet.ca for more free, open access decision focused video teaching cases from Acadia University.
