Firm Principal Brad Caldwell Named Intellectual Property Trailblazer

National legal publication recognizes Dallas lawyer among country’s best

DALLAS – Accomplished Dallas attorney Brad Caldwell of Caldwell Cassady & Curry is being recognized as one of the top intellectual property attorneys in the United States on the second annual Intellectual Property Trailblazers list published by The National Law Journal.

Mr. Caldwell is one of only 50 attorneys nationwide to earn a spot on the exclusive listing. His selection follows two recent, record-setting verdicts won by Caldwell Cassady & Curry, which represents clients in significant intellectual property disputes and high-stakes business disputes between company founders.

Along with fellow name principals Jason Cassady and Austin Curry, Mr. Caldwell helped longtime client VirnetX Holding Corp. win a patent infringement verdict against technology giant Apple Inc. earlier this year in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. Jurors awarded $625.6 million to VirnetX, which is the largest jury award in the country so far in 2016.

The recent win follows another Eastern District infringement verdict secured by Caldwell Cassady & Curry against Apple last year in an unrelated case where jurors ordered the company to pay $533 million to firm client Smartflash LLC. That verdict was the largest in Texas last year and the third-largest in the nation, according to the publishers of VerdictSearch.

Trained as an electrical engineer before earning his law degree, Mr. Caldwell represents clients in cases involving digital media, telecommunications and computer networking, data security, computer imaging, medical devices, enterprise software, banking technology and oilfield services.

The IP Trailblazers recognition represents Mr. Caldwell’s latest professional honor. Earlier this year, he was named to D Magazine’s annual list of the Best Lawyers in Dallas. He previously has earned selection to The Best Lawyers in America, Texas Super Lawyers, Texas Rising Stars and the Lawdragon 500 Leading Lawyers in America.
