Huang was selected as a 2023 Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” honoree, recognizing her as rising leader in the legal profession and for her community contributions. In 2022, Huang was named an “Attorney of the Year” by Minnesota Lawyer for her successful work at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board representing an automotive manufacturer against claims of patent infringement. Huang is vice chair of the PTAB Bar Association’s Communications Committee and a member of the Minnesota Asian Pacific American Bar Association and the Minnesota Intellectual Property Association.
