Partner Jane Michaels and her trial team secured the top monetary jury verdict in the state of Colorado in 2008. The jury awarded $14.3 million to her client, National Oilwell Varco, finding defendant Pason Systems USA liable for willful patent infringement.
Law Week Colorado recently recognized Jane for this large jury verdict in the feature article “Biggest Verdicts of the Year.” On April 30, 2009, Judge Richard Matsch denied the defendant’s motion for a new trial.
Congratulations to Jane for this tremendous accomplishment!
