Washington, DC – December 24, 2014 – Happy Holidays from Mei & Mark LLP!
Dear Friends, Colleagues, and Clients:
Happy Holidays from all of us at Mei & Mark LLP! As a premier IP and litigation boutique firm based in Washington, DC, we proudly share with you some of our highlights from 2014:
ITC Section 337 Investigations: We represented clients in seven patent-related Section 337 investigations before the U.S. International Trade Commission. In 2014, we strengthened our reputation as one of the few small firms with a top-notch Section 337 practice, and delivered cost-effective representation to our clients in the United States, China, Pakistan, Taiwan, and Thailand.
Patent Litigation: We represented clients in several patent infringement lawsuits in federal district courts, including obtaining summary judgment on noninfringement in the Central District of California. In addition, we are representing clients both before the Federal Circuit and in inter partes review (IPR) proceedings before the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
Complex Commercial Litigation: We scored a major victory in a complex commercial litigation in the Northern District of California in 2014, defeating the plaintiff’s effort to collect over $8 million from our clients.
Patent Prosecution: We expanded our patent prosecution group to accommodate increased demand for us to draft and prosecute original U.S. patent applications as well as prosecuting foreign-originated patent applications.
Diversity: We continued to attract attorneys with diverse backgrounds to join us in 2014, including an experienced trial lawyer who served in Iraq and Afghanistan as a U.S. military lawyer. As a leader in promoting diversity in the legal community, we sponsored the 2014 Installation Dinner of the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Washington, D.C., and the 2014 American Courage Awards hosted by Asian Americans Advancing Justice.
We thank you for your support in 2014 and look forward to working with you in 2015. May the New Year bring you happiness and prosperity!
