June 01, 2016

SAN FRANCISCO, CA —June 1, 2016—
O’Melveny’s California Patent Litigation Practice once again has been praised by IAM Patent 1000.

The 2016 Patent 1000 characterized the practice as a “class act,” calling the firm’s patent litigators “not mere technology dabblers – they have rigorous scientific training and all the trial skills you could want.”

It goes on to praise the work of partners George Riley, described as a “formidable adversary” and “excellent trial lawyer” who secured a permanent injunction for Mentor Graphics in 2015 following a nine-day jury trial against EVE-USA and Synopsys; and Mark Samuels, who was celebrated as he “cemented another jury trial success for Top Victory Electronics against Hitachi.”

Patent 1000 also noted O’Melveny’s plans for the future. “The firm is doing a tremendous job building a team for the next decade.” Ryan Yagura is described as a “brilliant” lawyer who “interfaces extremely well with high-level technical folks and can dig into the detail while getting to the heart of a matter.” David Almeling is described as an “up-and-coming star” who is “one of the most organized and [well-prepared] attorneys” and IP transactions partner Heather Meeker is called “one of the best.”
