BMC Software, Inc. v. NetIQ Corp.
Represented NetIQ in defense of an arbitration in which BMC Software claimed that two of NetIQ's major products infringed two patents owned by BMC. BMC sought $150 million in lost profits and royalties before trebling. NetIQ hired our attorneys to take over defense of the case six months before trial, after the proceeding had been pending for more than eighteen months. Within six months, the parties conducted almost the entire fact discovery for the case, and produced all of the expert reports and discovery relating to validity of the patents, the claimed infringement and damages. The case was resolved on satisfactory terms one week before the arbitration hearing.
