Results Matter

  • Successfully defended an instrumentation manufacture in trade secret litigation. After L&A defeated a motion for preliminary injunction, the plaintiff dismissed its complaint and the case was terminated. For more details, see Roscid.
  • Successfully resolved several patent troll litigations against a location-based mobile application start-up.
