Deep Patent & Trial Experience
We participated in the representation of Ariad, obtaining a $65 million jury verdict for infringement of our client’s patents for regulating NF-kappaB cell-signaling activity, the largest verdict in Massachusetts that year.
After securing a jury verdict of patent infringement, we negotiated a multimillion dollar settlement for our client Comair Rotron. The patent was directed to important magnetization technology for brushless DC electric motors.
By persuading a jury that the patents in suit were invalid, we successfully defended our client against accusations of infringement concerning a process for making fused-back automotive carpeting.
In disputes over brand names, we have also delivered major successes to our clients.
