Flanagan and Selwyn Once Again Named Among Top IP Litigators in California

News
WilmerHale Partners Mark Flanagan and Mark Selwyn were again named to the Daily Journal’s annual feature of the 75 leading IP litigators in California, a contest that identifies those who have had an exceptional impact on the larger world of intellectual property and the development of law in this practice. This is the third year that Palo Alto-based Partners Flanagan and Selwyn appeared in the Daily Journal’s exclusive list.

Flanagan, who joined the firm in 2006, represents clients in the telecommunications, computer and clean tech industries. He was noted for his significant victory in the International Trade Commission for his client, Shanghai, China-based Grace Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp. The ITC ruled that the asserted claims of the patent-in-suit were invalid, that there was no violation of Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, and terminated the investigation.

Selwyn, partner-in-charge of the Palo Alto office, was recognized for representing high-profile companies in biomedical, chemical, mechanical and business method patent disputes involving technologies ranging from wireless communications to angioplasty catheters. He was noted for his work on behalf of Broadcom Corp., where he negotiated a settlement to resolve worldwide litigation against Qualcomm Inc. and also for his work on behalf client Eastman Kodak Co., where he resolved litigation brought by LG Electronics Inc. before the ITC and federal court in the Southern District of California.
