At Brion Raffoul, Xiang primarily focuses on providing services to both the Chinese and the North American markets as he attends to the needs of existing and prospective clients in geographically diverse industries.

For the North American market, in collaboration with a wide Chinese patent practitioner network, Xiang provides China-centric prior art search and analysis, Chinese patent application preparation, and litigation support and coordination for Chinese matters.  These are well suited for clients seeking to implement China-centric and international patent protection strategies.

In addition to the above, Xiang and the Brion Raffoul team can provide portfolio management and patent litigation support services to their clients.  As well, the team can provide top-tier translations, including English or French to Chinese translations, and Chinese to English, French, or German translations.

Xiang was a partner at a well-established IP firm in China from 2014 to 2019.  Before that, he was a partner at one of the largest full-service law firms in Canada.  Xiang has also worked at the German Cancer Research Centre (DKFZ), the National Research Council (NRC) of Canada, and at a multinational telecommunications manufacturer.
