Banner & Witcoff was recognized by Managing Intellectual Property for filing 44 inter partes review petitions on behalf of client Comcast Corp. in the first half of 2017. This was the most IPR petitions filed by a law firm during this period.
According to MIP, Comcast filed the IPR petitions in response to Rovi suing Comcast in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas in April last year. Fifteen patents were at issue in those proceedings, and the case remains pending in the Southern District of New York after a successful motion to transfer.
Banner & Witcoff attorneys Bradley C. Wright, Frederic M. Meeker and Scott M. Kelly were recognized as the top three IPR petitioner attorneys in the first half of 2017. Charles L. Miller, Azuka C. Dike, Craig W. Kronenthal, Camille Sauer, Jared Radkiewicz and Joshua Davenport were also listed as top petitioner attorneys.
