What are some of the department’s most satisfying successes of the past year and why? Patricia (Pat) Carson: One of the most satisfying things about Kirkland’s IP practice is the broad range of matters we handle for an incredible group of clients. Highlights from the last year include a jury trial win in trade secret litigation on behalf of biotech company Flexus and its founders; a victory in a precedent-setting copyright fair use case for Fox News; obtaining a precedential opinion in a copyright case for Nike; a summary judgment win for AT&T; securing a critical motion for a major electronics client in a nine-patent case; successful resolutions of three cases before the ITC; and involvement in four appeals to the Supreme Court. We are also incredibly proud of our pro bono work. We successfully represented a New York-area musician in a trademark dispute with a competitor who misappropriated and unlawfully obtained a federal trademark registration to his stage name. The team continues its successful work on behalf of asylum seekers, veterans, and the LGBTQIA+ community, among others.
