New Federal Trade Secrets Law Yields First Award


Michael Nadel, a key member of the McDermott team that secured a major IP counterfeiting win for fig jam maker Dalmatia Import Group, called the dispute a “bet-your-company case” because the infringers “could have gobbled up the entire fig spread market.” After winning a $2.5 million jury award at trial, McDermott also secured more than $5.2 million in treble damages under a new federal law.
