DALLAS – The Dallas intellectual property and business litigation firm Caldwell Cassady & Curry is recognized as one of the nation’s top intellectual property firms in the 2023 IAM Patent 1000 rankings with firm principals Brad Caldwell, Jason Cassady, and Austin Curry claiming individual recognition for their work in high-profile patent disputes.
The annual IAM Patent 1000 is published by Law Business Research Ltd. and compiled by the company’s researchers based on submissions from law firms nationwide and interviews with nominees’ clients. The final rankings are widely relied on by those seeking to protect valuable intellectual property interests.
The IAM Patent 1000 describes Caldwell Cassady & Curry as “Best known for going up against huge industry players in high-stakes disputes, the [firm] has a glittering track record of securing vital victories for smaller entities.”
Individual clients say Mr. Caldwell is “a consummate lead trial lawyer” who is “incredibly analytical and truly shines when picking apart the other side’s expert.” Mr. Cassady is noted as “very savvy and appreciates the forward-thinking, strategic aspects of litigation.” Mr. Curry is credited as a trial lawyer who “always comes up with a new angle to present information and counters the other side brilliantly and in different ways each time.”
Caldwell Cassady & Curry has won more than $2.5 billion in verdicts and settlements since the firm was founded a decade ago. Those wins include seven consecutive trial victories against Apple by the firm’s attorneys.
Earlier this month, Caldwell Cassady & Curry helped Delaware-based Constellation Designs, LLC, win a $1.68 million verdict in a hotly contested patent infringement lawsuit against South Korea’s LG Electronics Inc. and its affiliates.
The jury in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas found that LG Electronics willfully infringed several Constellation Designs patents to manufacture OLED and QNED televisions and other products, assessing damages amounting to $6.75 per unit for each infringing product sold under the emerging ATSC 3.0 (NextGen TV) standard for television broadcasts.
