We represented the plaintiff in a patent infringement lawsuit relating to a patent on an award-winning toy. We won a preliminary injunction for our client and then obtained contempt sanctions against the defendants for violating the injunction. The defendants appealed both the granting of the preliminary injunction and the awarding of contempt sanctions. We ultimately settled the appeal and the underlying litigation on very favorable terms for our client.

Represented Life Technologies Corp. in a Federal Circuit Appeal stemming from a 2017 Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) decision in a covered business method proceeding (CBM). Michael Kiklis represented Life Technologies in two covered business method proceedings: one was filed in 2014 and the other was filed in 2015. Life Technologies prevailed in both proceedings with the PTAB finding that all challenged claims of Unisone Strategic IP Inc.’s inventory management patent recited ineligible subject matter pursuant to 35 U.S.C. § 101. This appeal involved the second CBM. Unisone chose not to appeal the first CBM. The Federal Circuit heard oral argument on December 4, 2018, and then affirmed the PTAB’s decision less than one week later.
