Santa Barbara, California, wireless audio company Sonos Inc. made a big splash in tech circles a couple of years back by suing Google both in the Central District of California and the U.S. International Trade Commission claiming the company infringed its patent technology.

Our Litigators of the Week this week, Clem Roberts and Bas de Blank of Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, and Sean Sullivan of Lee Sullivan Shea & Smith led a team that prevailed in the ITC case, securing an import ban on not only certain Google smart speakers, but also the Pixel phones used to control. The ITC ruling last week follows a decision from an administrative law judge at the agency who last year found Google infringed all five patents asserted by Sonos after a five-day remote trial.
