Silver - Firms: litigation
Acclaimed trial outfit Bartlit Beck is a repository of trust for the most commercially consequential and complex lawsuits. Perfectly capable of taking on the toughest patent disputes itself, but always happy to collaborate with other counsel as the occasion demands, the firm has an intense results focus that leads to high-quality, efficient representation. All the leading trial lawyers here challenge themselves with a diverse range of cases; but those with a strong concentration of patent and IP suits include Steven Derringer, Chris Lind and Scott McBride. Recent high-profile victories include a $137 million verdict for Meso Scale Diagnostics against Roche Diagnostics, masterminded by Derringer together with John Hughes.
