Huawei hiring lawyers in US - report

Huawei is expanding the number of lawyers it has in the United States so that it can focus on lawsuits with the American authorities, the Global Times reported on Tuesday.

Most of the newly hired legal professionals will be individuals that are experts in intellectual property rights and international affairs.

Huawei is currently working in the US under a 90-day temporary license it received from the Department of Commerce after it was initially blacklisted by the authorities in Washington for allegedly posing a threat to national security. Shortly after the ban was issued, the Chinese tech giant promised to look for "remedies," as it started negotiations with Google parallely with work on its own operating system.
