Press release from: McKool Smith

DALLAS – The law firm of McKool Smith has been selected as one of six “Intellectual Property Firms of the Year” for 2009 by the editors of Law 360, one of the nation’s leading publishers of legal news and information.

According to Law 360, McKool Smith’s selection to the prestigious list of top IP law firms was a result of the firm’s wins in four significant IP cases during 2009, including a $290 million judgment and injunction for i4i Inc. against Microsoft, a $267.5 million settlement for Visto Corp. against Blackberry maker Research in Motion, a $139 million verdict for Versata Software Inc. against enterprise software provider SAP, and a $19 million verdict for OPTi Inc. against Apple.

The Law 360 selection is only the latest honor for McKool Smith, which also represents clients in commercial litigation, white collar investigations and defense, and bankruptcy matters. The firm recently was recognized in Corporate Counsel magazine as a 2010 “Go-To Law Firm” for Fortune 500 companies. McKool Smith also was named to the inaugural “Midsize Hot List” published in The National Law Journal, and recognized in the same publication for winning more of the Top 100 U.S. Verdicts than any other law firm in the nation during the most recent survey period.

“2009 was another banner year for our firm’s trial practice,” says Mike McKool, co-founder of McKool Smith. “In 2008 we set a high bar when we won more top-100 jury verdicts than any other firm in the country. We are once again pleased that in 2009 we have had another year of spectacular results at the courthouse. This is due to the hard work and talent of our distinguished trial attorneys, who are consistently recognized by Law 360 and other publications as being among the very best.”

McKool Smith is recognized as one of the premier trial law firms in the United States based on significant courtroom victories and substantial settlements for domestic and international clients. With more than 100 attorneys in Austin, Dallas, Houston, Marshall, New York, and Washington DC, McKool Smith handles bankruptcy matters and commercial, intellectual property, and white collar litigation for companies and individuals, including major airlines, telecommunications companies, medical device manufacturers, energy producers, and many others.
