MoloLamken Releases 2015 Supreme Court Business Briefing

July 03, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
(Washington, July 3, 2015) The national litigation boutique MoloLamken LLP is pleased to announce the release of this year's MoloLamken Supreme Court Business Briefing. This is the fifth 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.

"It is hard to recall a Term in which a Supreme Court described by many as 'conservative' rendered so many decisions that defy that easy label," noted MoloLamken partner Robert Kry. "That trend ran through the Court's business cases, where business interests often found themselves on the losing end," added Michael Pattillo, another firm partner who edits the briefing with Kry.

The Court addressed many important issues this Term. It allowed plaintiffs to bring disparate-impact suits under the Fair Housing Act, and it delivered a pair of rulings expanding employees' rights to sue for discrimination. It handed securities plaintiffs a victory by allowing suits for misleading statements of opinion. It foreclosed a potential defense in patent suits alleging induced infringement. And in one of the most high-profile cases of the Term, it rejected a challenge to the Affordable Care Act that would have thrown the Act's insurance exchanges into disarray.

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's clients include leading corporations, hedge funds, private equity firms, investors, inventors, and executives. The firm has grown from 5 to 21 lawyers in just over five years and has offices in New York, Chicago, and Washington, D.C.

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.
