Patent litigation: full coverage

Within: Patent litigation: full coverage

Latham & Watkins LLP delivers ‘excellent service in terms of understanding the client’s business objective’, is ‘responsive’, ‘dedicated to the client’s mission’ and subject matter patentability litigation, PTAB proceedings and appellate work are particular areas of expertise; another standout feature is the practice’s close collaboration with the firm’s antitrust lawyers. Trio Matthew Moore, David Callahan and Jennifer Barry 53243 direct the practice from Washington DC, Chicago and San Diego respectively. In addition to successfully obtaining a summary judgement for Jaguar Land Rover North America in litigation against Vehicle Interface Technologies regarding dashboard displays, the team also assisted plaintiff Tessera with multi-patent litigation in seven suits against Samsung. Arista Networks, Symantec and Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals are also on the client list. Washington DC’s Maximilian Grant is a ‘formidable first-chair litigator’. ‘first-class appellate attorney’ Gabriel Bell in Washington DC recently made partner. San Francisco’s Perry Viscounty, Chicago’s Kenneth Schuler and New York’s Daniel Brown are also noted. Kevin Wheeler joined the Washington DC office from Fish & Richardson P.C..

Patent litigation: international trade commission

Within: Patent litigation: international trade commission

The ‘excellent’ team at Latham & Watkins LLP ‘is dedicated to its client’s mission’. The practice’s core expertise lies in the technology sector, but the group also excels in advising clients from the electronic and automotive sectors. ‘Extremely engaging and persuasive’ practice head Bert Reiser and ‘formidable first-chair litigator’ Maximilian Grant, both in Washington DC, are particularly active ITC practitioners, with Julie Madeleine Holloway in San Francisco, Douglas Lumish in Silicon Valley as well as Matthew Moore and Adam Greenfield, both in Washington DC, also handling a fair share of the caseload. The addition of former Fish & Richardson P.C. litigator Kevin Wheeler in Washington DC already proves fruitful as the recent caseload contains impressive highlights under his lead: chief among them was Wheeler’s and Reiser’s successful representation of LG Chem in a matter combining ITC and district court proceedings against Amperex Technology to protect the Safety Reinforced Separator technology. Other clients include Tessera, Honda and Arista Networks.

Within: Trademarks: litigation

Latham & Watkins LLP’s ‘excellent’ team handles high-profile litigation, often with an international element, and has notable strength in the technology and entertainment sectors. San Diego-based co-head Jennifer Barry represented NUDE Skincare in various international disputes, including an infringement suit brought against Happiness Group arising from its use of the ‘Nudu’ mark. Greg Garre in Washington DC and Andrew Gass in San Francisco led advice to Pandora Media and iHeartMedia in various litigation brought by a number of record labels alleging piracy. The team, which is also led by Matthew Moore in Washington DC and David Callahan in Chicago, was strengthened by the arrival of Kevin Wheeler in Washington DC from Fish & Richardson P.C.. Clients also recommend Perry Viscounty in Orange County, which is also where recently promoted counsel David Troutman is based.
