Getting Results – JMBM Wins a Major Patent Infringement Trial

For patent cases that require more extensive resources and a team of lawyers, JMBM provides the needed expertise. Case in point: Medtronic v. Michelson in which JMBM defended Dr. Michelson, a Los Angeles inventor, against medical giant Medtronic in a case that involved more than 100 patents. JMBM pulled a team together to prepare and try a five-month jury trial in which the jury found in favor of Dr. Michelson, awarding $110 million in damages, $60 million in patent infringement damages and $400 million in punitive damages. Medtronic subsequently acquired Dr. Michelson’s patents and technology for $1.35 billion.
