National Law Journal Again Names Cooley to IP Hot List

Palo Alto – June 23, 2016 – The National Law Journal named Cooley to its Intellectual Property Hot List for the fourth time in five years. The list recognizes only "15 law firms that set the bar in intellectual property law in 2015, scoring big wins for clients."

The NLJ highlights Cooley's win for long-time client Qualcomm in a patent case filed by ParkerVision, in which we scored a rare reversal of a $173 million jury verdict. Cooley was also commended for persuading the US Supreme Court to toss out an adverse Federal Circuit decision against client Gevo, a biofuels pioneer, in a long-running patent dispute against Butamax.

The publication quoted Cooley partner Michelle Rhyu, who represented Gevo, observing that the firm is well positioned for future growth and success with "a vibrant and exciting" next generation of trial lawyers.
