MoloLamken Releases 2014 Supreme Court Business Briefing

New York, New York   July 08, 2014   Business News
(PRLEAP.COM) (Washington, July 8, 2014) The national litigation boutique MoloLamken LLP is pleased to announce the release of this year's MoloLamken Supreme Court Business Briefing. This is the fourth year the firm has published its summary of the decisions from the U.S. Supreme Court's past Term that have the greatest relevance to business.

The Court addressed many important issues this term, including the patentability of certain software-implemented inventions, the intersection of copyright and certain cloud technologies, the scope of securities class actions, and the Affordable Care Act's contraceptive mandate.

"The term was notable for the unusual degree of consensus among the Justices," noted MoloLamken partner Robert Kry. "It was also a year in which several highly anticipated decisions were resolved on relatively narrow grounds," added Michael Pattillo, another firm partner who edits the briefing with Kry.

Steven Molo and Jeffrey Lamken, who had held leadership positions in large full-service firms, founded MoloLamken on the belief that complex litigation is most effectively handled by smaller teams comprised of smart, highly experienced lawyers who are focused on results rather than process. MoloLamken handles complex business litigation, IP litigation, and white collar defense and investigations in the trial and appellate courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court. The firm has grown from 5 to 21 lawyers in four years and has offices in New York, Chicago, and Washington, D.C.

Currently, MoloLamken is representing residential mortgage backed securities investors in eight cases around the country in which the potential damages are as high as $1 billion. In recent victories, judges in Chicago and Connecticut have allowed cases to proceed against Decision One, a mortgage originator owned by HSBC, and WMC, an organization owned by GE. The firm won a major victory for Rambus last June when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit reversed a decision of the U.S. PTO that had invalidated one of its key memory device patents. And, in significant white-collar wins, it recently persuaded the U.S. Department of Justice to decline to prosecute a senior Japanese auto executive in a cross-border antitrust investigation, and a public official investigated for accepting bribes from a New York real estate developer. The firm just filed a detailed objection to the NFL concussion litigation class action settlement on behalf of seven well regarded former NFL players.

MoloLamken was recently named "Litigation Boutique of the Year" by ACQ Magazine. Earlier this year, the National Law Journal named the firm to its Litigation Boutique Hot List.

The firm's clients include leading corporations, hedge funds, private equity firms, investors, inventors, and executives. It prefers fee arrangements centered on value that provide clients with predictability and reward the firm for results.

The MoloLamken Supreme Court Business Briefing has been widely praised in both the business and legal communities for its clarity and insight. To read this year's edition, please click here. If you wish to receive a paper copy, please email Mike or Robert.
