Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP is well known for its ability to obtain seminal Supreme Court judgments. The New York-based team successfully defended Automated Packaging Systems against claims brought by Free-Flow Packaging International regarding a patent covering the apparatus used to inflate packaging cushions — one of the client’s key patents. Another highlight was representing Costco in litigation against plaintiff Bosch, involving 18 patents covering windshield wipers. SNF Holding, L&R USA and Citizens Equity First Credit Union are also clients. James W. Dabney heads the practice. Stephen Rabinowitz left for Dechert LLP.
