Nabil’s practice focuses on preparing and prosecuting patent applications and writing patentability opinions in the area of aerospace, mechanical, and software engineering. Prior to joining Han Santos, Nabil spent more than eight years with Boeing working on various programs, the most prominent of which included the 787-8 Dreamliner. Nabil held a key responsibility in developing an empirical analysis method of composite material-systems used on the 787-8 wing-box.
