Patent infringement, business litigation victories propel Dallas firm to elite listing

DALLAS – The Dallas-based intellectual property and business litigation law firm Caldwell Cassady & Curry has been recognized as one of the nation’s best for securing client recoveries.

The firm earned the second-highest spot on The National Law Journal’s recently published Top 50 Recoveries list, a nationwide ranking based on statistics compiled by VerdictSearch. Caldwell Cassady & Curry’s wins from July 2015 to July 2016 included multiple courtroom victories and favorable pre-trial settlements in patent infringement cases and high-stakes commercial disputes.

The winning streak included a $625.6 million patent infringement verdict for VirnetX Holding Corp. against technology giant Apple Inc. last February, which ranked as the largest verdict in Texas and the fourth-largest in the nation during 2016.

In October, Caldwell Cassady & Curry won again before a separate Eastern District jury, which issued a $302 million verdict in favor of VirnetX after finding that Apple infringed patented technology covering secure mobile communications. The verdict ranked as the third-largest in Texas and the nation’s seventh-largest last year.

Less than three weeks before winning the second VirnetX trial, Caldwell Cassady & Curry also won a $22 million verdict for Cellular Communications Equipment, LLC, in another Eastern District trial against Apple for infringing a network technology patent.

The firm recently was named to the national 2017 Best Law Firms list published by The Best Lawyers in America and U.S. News & World Report. Name principals Brad Caldwell, Jason Cassady and Austin Curry are consistently recognized among the country’s top courtroom lawyers, including rankings the annual Texas Super Lawyers and Texas Rising Stars lists.
