The IT services firm Syntel and its attorney Kannon Shanmugam of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison won a partial victory in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in a trade secrets case Thursday, with the three-judge panel vacating a significant damages judgment against Syntel.

The panel of Circuit Judges Reena Raggi, Richard Wesley and Raymond Lohier Jr., ruled against Syntel on its liability arguments, finding in favor of The TriZetto Group, which won the jury verdict in 2020 and is represented by Kirkland & Ellis partner John O’Quinn.
