MBHB Takes on San Francisco for the 2016 BIO International Convention

McDonnell Boehnen Hulbert & Berghoff LLP was an exhibitor at the 2016 BIO International Convention in San Francisco June 6-9. During the event, we networked with colleagues from around the world at our booth, attended convention sessions and hosted our annual reception at Kells Irish Pub, where more than 300 attendees joined us for an evening of food, drinks and fun.  


Thank you to everyone who helped to make BIO 2016 a success. We look forward to seeing you next year at BIO 2017 in San Diego!
