Morgan Lewis partners Thomas Peterson and Michael Lyons have been recognized as Litigators of the Week by The Am Law Litigation Daily for their US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit victory on behalf of the Alfred E. Mann Foundation. In a Q&A with the publication, Thomas and Michael detailed the challenges they faced and the winning strategies they implemented to prevail in the 12-year fight. The foundation will direct the $268 million award secured by the Morgan Lewis team towards continued research. “It’s gratifying to know that the foundation intends to put the proceeds of its recovery towards the same kinds of medical research efforts that produced the remarkable technology that forms the basis in this case," said Michael.
The profile also highlights contributions by Morgan Lewis of counsel Michael Carr and associates Ehsun Forghany and Keon Seif-Naraghi and trial team members partner Jason Gettleman and associates Lindsey Shinn and Jacob Minne.
