The Intellectual Property Hot List entry for K&L Gates on May 6 misreported the firm's client in CareFusion v. Sigma International. The firm represented Sigma International Ltd. Additionally, the entry for Kenyon & Kenyon listed the wrong attorneys as the lead partners representing Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. The actual lead partners were Elizabeth Holland and William James.
The Washington Managing Partners Report on April 22 incorrectly described Cooley partner Ryan Naftulin's duties. He is partner in charge of the D.C. office and vice chairman of the firm's business department.
In the March 25 edition, the 100 Most Influential Lawyers in America entry for Microsoft Corp. general counsel Brad Smith incorrectly reported that he was co-founder of the Center for Competitive Politics. He is not affiliated with that organization.
In the March 4 edition, the Top 100 Verdicts of 2012 list, compiled by NLJ affiliate VerdictSearch, did not contain an $18 million verdict in the case Sunovion Pharmaceuticals Inc. v. Dey Pharma L.P. The verdict should have appeared as tied for the No. 99 slot. A corrected version of the top verdicts list appears at NLJ.com.
"Growth Spurt" in the March 4 edition incorrectly reported the year when Jack Abramoff stopped working at K&L Gates. It was 2000.

An Inadmissible item published on February 18, "End of an era," misreported the series of mergers that produced Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman. In fact, Washington's Shaw Pittman merged with San Francisco-based Pillsbury Winthrop in 2005. Additionally, "Artistic," a profile of Art Institute of Chicago general counsel Julie Getzels published on January 28, should have made clear that Quarles & Brady's Janice Rodgers helps the in-house team advise donors; Rodgers does not provide direct advice to institute donors.
