United States: Bill Lee Is Named Among Law360's IP MVPs Of The Year For The Fourth Consecutive Year
Last Updated: December 9 2014

Law360 has again named Partner Bill Lee as an IP MVP of the Year, highlighting his "superstar" status as the only attorney to earn the title in the IP category for four straight years. The annual MVP contest recognizes the most elite attorneys in a wide range of practice areas who have had the most impressive successes in high-stakes litigation, record-breaking deals and complex global matters.

Again this year, Lee is highlighted for his continuous and closely-watched representation of Apple in its ongoing litigations against Samsung. As stated by Law360, in the past 12 months, Lee has argued for the client in front of two different juries in separate cases and came away with sizable verdicts each time.

"Litigating the high-profile disputes over popular products sold by two of the world's most recognizable companies has been exciting and challenging," Lee said. "To have tried the cases three times before three different juries and gotten good results for Apple each time was fun and also very gratifying."

While Lee's representation of Apple generated the most press, it's far from his only significant work within the past year. In fact, Lee reported to Law360 that two of the cases that were most satisfying were the matters he worked on in a secondary or advisory role, allowing up-and-coming attorneys to take the lead. Those cases included working with Partner Lauren Fletcher to earn a victory for client VGo Communications and with Partner Louis Tompros on an important win for Cisco Systems.

"It's gratifying to see the next generation of lawyers rise to the challenge of being a leader," he said.
