Our Litigators of the Week are Kirkland & Ellis partners Adam Alper, Brandon Brown and Mike De Vries, who bagged a $764.5 million jury verdict for Motorola in massive trade secret fight with Hytera, a multi-billion dollar company based in China. 

After a three-and-a-half month trial in Chicago federal court, the jury took just 2.5 hours to award Motorola every penny it sought—$345.7 million in compensatory damages, and $418.8 million in punitive damages. It’s a verdict that serves as a warning to other overseas companies trying to dodge responsibility for IP theft.
