'Intellect and litigation strategy are key strengths’ at Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP, which is noted for its 'solid, remarkably thorough work’. The firm had another busy year in 2018, continuing to handle high-profile and high-stakes cases. Highlights included representing Qualcomm in consolidated actions in the Southern District of California against Apple concerning Qualcomm's patent licensing and modem chipset businesses; the team included Evan Chesler, J Wesley Earnhardt and Vanessa Lavely, who was promoted to partner in 2018. Elsewhere, Benjamin Gruenstein represented Avon in a breach of contract dispute filed by ASG, Technologies, while in the New York State Court of Appeals, Richard Clary, Michael Reynolds and Lauren Moskowitz secured the dismissal of a Martin Act claim against client Credit Suisse filed by the New York Attorney General. In a significant development in September 2018, former District Judge for the Southern District of New York Katherine Forrest returned to the firm. Darin McAtee is 'a first-rate trial lawyer with outstanding performance in the courtroom’ and Omid Nasab is also recommended. Key litigator David Marriott is another name to note.
