Davis Polk partners Ashok Ramani, Micah Block and David Lisson, counsel Philip Sheng and associates Kathryn Bi, Ian Hogg and Alena Farber received a shout out in Litigation Daily’s “Litigator of the Week” column for securing a trial victory for Magnolia Medical Technologies, Inc. in its patent infringement case against its sole competitor Kurin, Inc. In a bifurcated trial, the Davis Polk team secured a verdict of infringement in the first phase and a verdict of damages and no invalidity in the second phase. The damages award represents a 17.7% royalty and the per-unit rate is available to be applied to additional infringing sales, which could increase the jury’s $2.1 million award several times over.
