The big verdicts keep coming for intellectual property law firm McKool Smith

What a year it's been for McKool Smith, PC. The big verdicts just keep coming. Just this week, the firm won a $59 million patent infringement verdict on behalf of Tokyo-

based electronics manufacturer Pioineer Corp. against Samsung. The lawsuit charged that Samsung infringed two Pioneer patents relating to plasma display technology, U.S. Patent Numbers 5,182,489 and 5,640,068.

Earlier this year, the firm won a $21 million patent infringement verdict on behalf of Tyler, Texas, based technology company Anascape against Nintendo in a fight over patents used in video game controllers like the Wii and Gamecube. In May, McKool Smith attorneys won a $250 million patent infringement verdict for Medtronic against Boston Scientific relating to a balloon catheter patent used in the surgical treatment of heart disease. In June, the firm reached an $83 million settlement for i2 Technologies in a patent dispute against SAP AG.
