Led Defense of Federal and State Criminal Trade-Secret Theft Cases Against Vendor of National Telephone Switching Systems


  • Led criminal defense of major vendor of national telephone switching systems through protracted federal and state software piracy/trade-secret-theft investigation; despite the filing of forceful criminal complaints by industry competitor—the largest telecommunications company in the world—and a direct criminal referral against client company by sitting federal judge, separately convinced both federal and state prosecutors that client’s software development was result of valid and unprotected “reverse engineering.”
 
Result: Declination of prosecution by DOJ and state prosecuting authorities; no prosecution of company or individual targets.
