It’s a mighty impressive slate of litigation wins you all wracked up over the past two weeks, so let’s get straight to them.
A team at Latham & Watkins led by partners David Callahan and Bert Reiser gets our first runner-up spot this week for landing a $1.8 billion settlement for electric vehicle battery maker LG Energy Solution in its trade secret showdown with SK Innovation. The settlement comes just two months after the full U.S. International Trade Commission adopted the holdings of an earlier ruling from an administrative law judge who entered a default judgment against SK based on a “document deletion campaign” mounted in anticipation of the ITC investigation, a win that also landed the Latham team runner-up honors. The White House issued a statement praising the settlement calling it “a win for American workers and the American auto industry” given its impact on the country’s ability to ramp up electric vehicle battery production. Hogan Lovells and government relations firm Peck Madigan Jones also played leading roles in securing the settlement for LGES. The Hogan Lovells team was led by senior counsel Ted Essex and partner Joe Raffetto, Ivan Zapien, and Kelly Ann Shaw.
