The Daily Journal has named two of WilmerHale's significant 2012 client victories to their "Top Verdicts" list, calling attention to California's most widely-watched rulings of the year. Recognized for being closely followed and examined across the nation, the cases, Apple v. Samsung and Mformation v. Research in Motion were featured in the Daily Journal's February 13, 2013 issue.
Apple v. Samsung was a well-known global patent fight which secured victories on multiple fronts. Apple defeated all of Samsung's claims of infringement and obtained a jury award of more than $1 billion on Apple's claims. The WilmerHale team representing Apple was led by Partner and former Co-managing Partner of WilmerHale Bill Lee, Partner and Palo Alto office Partner-in-Charge Mark Selwyn and Partners Joe Mueller, Peter J. Kolovos, S. Calvin Walden and Lauren B. Fletcher.
Mformation v. Research in Motion resulted in an overturn verdict of $147.2 million patent infringement against Research in Motion-stating that the company did not infringe Mformation Technologies Inc.'s device management technology as they had claimed. The WilmerHale team representing Research in Motion was led by partners Mark Matuschak and Andrew Grossman with a team that included Partners Cynthia Vreeland, David Cavanaugh and Evelyn Mak, Counsel Larissa Park, Senior Associate Erin Greenfield Mehta, Associate Aaron Thompson, and former associate Meng Xi.
