Our Practice

We practice in the areas of Intellectual Property Litigation, Commercial Litigation, and IT / Technology Transactions. Our blended practice gives us a broader perspective. We welcome the opportunity to compare our record against others.

Intellectual Property Litigation

Lead trial counsel for Respondent Realtek Semiconductor in Inv. No. 749(c). Unlike other respondents in the investigation, all of whom elected to argue the asserted patent was invalid, we focused Realtek’s defense on non-infringement issues. In its final determination, the International Trade Commission found the asserted patent valid, but not infringed. The cornerstone of this finding was our lawyer’s trial examination of the opposing expert, which persuaded the ITC that the contrary position urged by Complainant led to “absurd” results.

Lead trial counsel for minority shareholders in bringing a breach of fiduciary duty, shareholder oppression, and breach of contract suit against the majority shareholder of a closely-held corporation.

IT / Licensing Transactions

Representative matter
Lead counsel for a metals industry client in a global enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementation transaction. The concessions that our lawyer secured from the ERP implementer—one of the top 50 technology companies in the world—prompted the implementer to subsequently seek his advice on licensing negotiation strategies.
