Lockheed Martin Corp., which last spring won a $37 million trade secrets verdict against a competitor, has asked a federal judge in Atlanta for more than $16 million as reimbursement for fees and expenses it paid to the Kilpatrick Stockton and Venable law firms to pursue the case.
L-3 Communications Integrated Systems, which a jury found had deliberately misappropriated Lockheed’s trade secrets regarding an antisubmarine bomber, has countered that the fee request is excessive. L-3 Comm claims, among other things, that Kilpatrick Stockton rotated associates in and out of the case, racking up additional hourly fees as newly assigned lawyers logged “unreasonable hours to recreate knowledge obtained by other associates.”
