O’Melveny’s Patent Victory for Mentor Graphics Covered by Multiple Publications

October 15, 2014 O’Melveny & Myers’ recently helped achieve a complete victory for Mentor Graphics in a patent infringement case against Emulation and Verification Engineering S.A. (EVE) and Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS). An Oregon jury found that one Mentor patent was directly and indirectly infringed by EVE and Synopsys and awarded damages and royalties to Mentor. The verdict received widespread media coverage, with reports by The Recorder, Daily Journal, Courthouse News Service, and Law360, among other publications.

The O’Melveny team was led by partners George Riley, Mark Miller, Luann Simmons, and Geoff Yost, and counsel Anne Huffsmith.
