Versata v. SAP.
Assisted client Versata Software not only reach a $391 million patent infringement jury verdict using a new lost profits claim, but also helped to uphold that win over years of high-powered appeals. We were actively involved in the development of the winning lost profits model, and developing the arguments that resulted in that model being affirmed in its entirety on appeal.

Rembrandt v. Samsung.
We beat the odds when we obtained a $15.7 million federal jury verdict in Texas in this patent infringement case.
