  • Representing a major manufacturer of LED devices in a two-patent case relating to optical lenses. After a six-day trial, the jury found both patents valid, infringement was induced, and such infringement was willful. The jury awarded the full amount of damages sought.
  • Representing a cellular provider in the Eastern District of Texas. After favorable claim construction and pre-trial motions in limine, the matter was able to be resolved for a fraction of the damages plaintiff was seeking.
  • Representing a medical device manufacturer in the Eastern District of Michigan and winning a stay in view of pending petitions for Inter Partes Review.
  • Representing a database access software firm in the Eastern District of Texas invalidating plaintiff’s patent for lack of patentable subject matter.
