Within Patent litigation: full coverage, McKool Smith PC is a third tier firm,

McKool Smith PC’s ‘very effective and very responsive’ patent litigation team is led by Mike McKool from the Dallas office, who is ‘strong in maintaining client relations and has excellent judgment’. His team includes Douglas Cawley who is ‘as good a courtroom lawyer in front of a jury as any ever seen; very practical, easygoing, and cost-effective’ and ‘the very smart and dedicated’ Thedore Stevenson. Silicon Valley-based Courtland Reichman provides ‘sound pragmatic advice’. The well-known plantiffs practice recently obtained a jury verdict in favor of Ericsson that found defendants including D-Link and Belkin had infringed patents covering internet routers and other wireless communication systems; the firm is also representing the client in cases against Samsung. Other damages wins were achieved for Parkervision against Qualcomm and Summit 6 against RIM. It acted for the plaintiff in Ultramercial v Hulu, in which the Supreme Court asked the Federal Circuit to further consider the patent eligibility of abstract ideas. Los Angeles-based Roderick Dorman has been acting for Rovi Corporation, and Samuel Baxter represented defendant Medtronic in a case against Wyeth, winning a summary judgment ruling of invalidity.
