ITC specialist Adduci, Mastriani & Schaumberg, LLP, based in Washington DC, remains highly active, particularly as co-counsel, on Section 337 patent litigation cases, where it has deep and longstanding expertise. Tom Schaumberg’s ‘advice and guidance through the intricacies of ITC law and proceedings is invaluable’; he was co-counsel for Tessera, obtaining a settlement in an action it brought against Freescale Semiconductor to forfeit bonds posted following a previous ITC ruling that found some of the latter’s imports infringed the client’s products. Louis Mastriani successfully acted for Garmin in a multi-respondent case brought by Rambus, regarding importation of certain seminconductor chips, with the ITC finding patents asserted against the client invalid and unenforceable, and also that the complainant had failed to demonstrate the existence of a domestic industry for these patents. Mastriani has also been advising Seiko Epson Corporation as respondent to a case regarding patents related to flash memory card readers. James Adduci acted for Lutron Electronics Company as complainant in an investigation regarding patents for dimmer light switches. The practice hired Deanna Tanner Okun, who was previously a US ITC chairperson.
