Densify Secures $236M IP Verdict Against VMware
January 29, 2020
Reichman Jorgensen has secured a $236 million patent infringement
verdict on behalf of Densify against tech giant VMware.
"As we maintained throughout trial, VMware unlawfully used Densify's intellectual property for its own gain," said Courtland Reichman, lead counsel for Densify. "We are very pleased with the jury's verdict and consider it not only a victory for Densify, but a victory for all technology companies who risk being unfairly squeezed out of the market by larger competitors who infringe their valuable inventions."
VMware plans to appeal, they said, “While we appreciate and respect the judicial process, we continue to strongly believe that we do not infringe the patents asserted against us in this case and intend to vigorously pursue all legal remedies that are available to us to prove that we are not liable here.”
Along with Mr. Reichman, the Densify
trial team included Reichman Jorgensen partners Christine E. Lehman, Khue
V. Hoang, Shawna Ballard, and Jennifer P. Estremera, and firm
associates Wesley L. White, Kate Falkenstien, Ariel C. Green, Michael G.
Flanigan, Leaf Williams, Connor S. Houghton, and Joachim B. Steinberg,
along with co-counsel Kenneth L. Dorsney of Morris James LLP, Gary J.
Toman of Weinberg Wheeler Hudgins Gunn & Dial LLC, and Peter J. Ayers of
the Law Office of Peter J. Ayers, PLLC.
