United States: Bill Lee Named Litigator Of The Week By Litigation Daily For $74M Federal Circuit Reversal On Behalf Of Cisco
Last Updated: January 13 2016

Partner Bill Lee has been named Litigator of the Week by the Litigation Daily for his role in earning a Federal Circuit reversal of a $74M judgment in favor of Cisco. This is the fourth Litigator of the Week title that Lee has earned.

On December 28, 2015, WilmerHale achieved this significant victory for Cisco Systems, when a panel of the Federal Circuit unanimously reversed a $74 million judgment against Cisco after concluding that plaintiff Commil USA, LLC had failed to prove at trial that Cisco's products actually infringe Commil's patent. The case was on remand to the Federal Circuit after the Supreme Court's decision in Commil USA, LLC v. Cisco Systems, Inc., 135 S. Ct. 1920 (2015). As cited by Litigation Daily, Lee "has long been considered a titan of the patent litigation bar," and "this week he added to that legacy by engineering a reversal of fortunes for client Cisco Systems Inc. after the company suffered a high-profile loss at the US Supreme Court in May." Read his complete profile, as published by Litigation Daily.

Lee received the Litigator of the Week award in 2008 when he was recognized for back-to-back victories for Broadcom and Targus; in 2012 when Apple defeated all of Samsung's claims of infringement and obtained a jury award of more than $1 billion on Apple's claims; and in for his lead role in representing Pfizer in its $2.15 billion settlement with generic drug makers.
