Sarah Chapin Columbia and Michael Kendall were named “Litigators of the Week” for what the publication called “a big victory” for Japan’s Seikagaku Corp. and its U.S. distributor Zimmer Holdings. The two companies were defendants in patent infringement claims made by Genzyme Corp. Ms. Columbia said a persuasive argument with the federal court jury was that Genzyme’s "hired experts contradicted what their business people were saying internally" about the possibility of infringement. By contrast, Mr. Kendall said that McDermott and its clients "gave the jury the full picture. We tried a broad case. We covered the technology. And we covered the business aspect."
