WilmerHale Prevails in $2B Patent Case on Behalf of Intel

May 10, 2017

WilmerHale achieved a significant trial victory for Intel Corporation in a $2 billion patent infringement suit brought by AVM Technologies. The six-day jury trial held in the US District Court of Delaware before Judge Richard Andrews resulted in a finding of no infringement on all eight asserted claims.

The case, AVM Technologies, LLC v. Intel Corporation, was filed by AVM in January 2015—it was the second lawsuit that AVM filed against Intel concerning the same microprocessor circuit patent. In a significant pre-trial action one week before trial, the court granted Intel's Daubert motion to exclude AVM's expert testimony on damages.

The WilmerHale team representing Intel was led by Partners Bill Lee and Joseph Mueller, and included Partners Lauren Fletcher, Jordan Hirsch, David Marcus, Bill McElwain, Jim Quarles and Todd Zubler; Counsel Brittany Amadi, Kevin Goldman and Matthew Leary; Senior Associates Sarah Frazier and Michaela Sewall; and Associate Steven Horn
