In a US International Trade Commission (ITC) action brought against client MediaTek Inc, Asia's largest fabless semiconductor company, a WilmerHale trial team secured a significant victory.
The complaint alleged that MediaTek infringed a Freescale Semiconductor patent relating to bus termination circuitry. After a hard-fought battle, on Friday July 13, 2012 Administrative Law Judge Rogers issued a Final Initial Determination finding that there was no violation by our client MediaTek on three alternative grounds: no domestic industry, invalidity and non-infringement.
WilmerHale Partners Keith Slenkovich and Jim Dowd led the trial team, with Partner Joe Haag counseling on intellectual property issues. Other members of the trial team included Partners Nathan Walker, Michael Esch, Special Counsel Spence Chubb, Senior Associate Andrea Pacelli, and Associates Tobias Mock and Michael Silhasek. Partners Bill Lee and Jim Quarles guided and supported the team throughout the case.
