“As always, you guys put together a great strategy that allowed truth and justice to prevail. This sort of early, straight-on approach can produce great results. I refer to it as the ‘McAndrews shock-and-awe’ approach to patent litigation.”

Deputy General Counsel

“My personal regard for you and your firm will always be at the highest level. You are an icon to which all other intellectual property attorneys should be measured against.”

Vice President, Research & Engineering

“It’s not very often that the Davids of the world can walk away from the Goliaths without broken bones, but we managed to do so through your efforts and, for that, our team extends thanks to your team at McAndrews, Held & Malloy.”

Vice President & General Counsel

“MH&M possesses extraordinary skill in patent law matters and is very client-sensitive and responsive. Overall, the firm is one of the best I have ever encountered.”

Senior Vice President, Secretary & General Counsel

“Your team out-prepared, out-researched, out-briefed and out-argued the other side, which had three or four times as many lawyers committed full-time to the case. I will certainly recommend McAndrews, Held & Malloy for any trial work, particularly if it involves technical matters, such as patents, other intellectual property and trade secrets.”

Assistant General Counsel

“I have worked with many different litigation teams on a variety of complex commercial lawsuits, but I’ve never seen so much accomplished in so short a period of time. It was a privilege and pleasure to have the opportunity to work with each of you.”

General Counsel

“Your firm’s management style is aggressive, organized, well-directed to common objectives, and it has a shared purpose and goals. I was further impressed with your firm’s sense of communication and urgency. These are all traits of successful companies, and I do not wonder why yours follows this pattern. I want to thank you and your entire team for their energy, enthusiasm and hard work.”

Vice President & General Manager

“Your cross examinations were, in my opinion, the key to the finding of willfulness. They were a masterful balance of respect and tough probing that led to our victory.”

Vice President, Research & Development

“With your firm, we developed a new application of infringement damages and pushed it all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. You have some of the best patent trial lawyers I have ever seen.”

Vice President, General Counsel

“Our professional associations have been among the highlights of my 20-year career. I greatly appreciate having had the opportunity to work with you and your firm.”

Chief Patent Counsel

“Obviously, our settlement was premised on a lot of fine lawyering by you and others in your firm. We’ve been impressed by the quality and timeliness of your services.”

Assistant General Counsel & Assistant Secretary

“I understand that we really complicated your presentation of our case, but we thank you for the outstanding results.”

Vice President & General Counsel

“I want to congratulate you and your team for an outstanding job in presenting our case. It was obvious that your preparedness and dedication to all aspects of our case will help carry the day. Thanks for a job well done.”

Patent Counsel


“Your opening statement was, without a doubt, the finest opening statement I have ever heard in my entire career, both on the bench and in trial practice. Your final arguments were superb.”

U.S. District Court Judge

“It’s not often that jurors get to see the very talented, internationally known lawyers that you have had a chance to witness in this trial. Our system works all the better when the lawyers are as outstanding as you (the jury) have been able to witness in this case.”

U.S. District Court Judge

“I would like to thank all of your lawyers. It has been a pleasure working with all of them. You (the jury) were fortunate to be chosen for a trial like this with such experienced lawyers who conduct themselves in such a professional and classy way, and I very much appreciate it.”

U.S. District Court Judge

“The level of professionalism and the advocacy in this case has been exceptional in my judgment. And I say this mainly so that, hopefully, it will not only go to the lawyers, but to the clients, because they need to know that the clarity of the presentations, the quality of the advocacy, the helpfulness of what has been presented and said, and — probably most important these days — the cooperation and the civility among counsel to get this case before us, has been exceptional.”


“I’ve tried hundreds, maybe thousands, of cases in my life and can honestly say I’ve never tried a case better prepared or better presented than this (one). Each of you should be commended for your professionalism, for your preparation, for your knowledge, and for your grasp of the issues — factually as well as legally. It has been a pleasure having you in my court.”

U.S. District Court Judge

“I think that both sides agree that this is a question of first impression, and I just want to thank both lawyers for the thoroughness of the exposition of the law and multiple theories. Each side has four or five different cascading positions that were very clearly set forth, and I found it awfully helpful. We get a lot of briefs that sometimes are not always so helpful, but I thought that all the briefs by both sides in this case were very thorough — particularly where we had new issues of importance.”
