Hohbach’s distinguished patent law career, Harold developed close working relationships with inventors from the Valley and grew to greatly admire their ingenuity, creativity and contributions to society. Harold's law practice covered a broad spectrum of technologies, including electronics, semiconductor manufacturing, mainframe computing, optically variable thin films and electro-mechanical, mechanical and medical devices. 

Harold was passionate about education and inspiring the next generation of thinkers and doers.
