Our first runner-up this week is a team at Latham & Watkins led by partners David Callahan and Bert Reiser and counsel Sarah Gragert who got a huge win at the U.S. International Trade Commission in a trade secret battle involving electric vehicle battery technology. The full commission last week largely adopted the holdings of an earlier ruling from an administrative law judge who entered a default judgment for Latham client LG Energy Solutions based on a “document deletion campaign” mounted by rival SK Innovation in anticipation of the investigation. On Feb. 10, the full commission affirmed the ALJ’s initial determination and issued a 10-year exclusion order barring SK from importing batteries or components used to make them. The ITC offered SK limited carve-outs for three existing customers and will require SK to get commission sign-off on any “designed-around” products. The Latham team also included Jeffrey Homrig and Joseph Lee.
