Haug Partners Successfully Defends Clients Against RICO and Fraud Allegations

On March 8, 2019 Judge Analisa Torres of the Southern District of New York ruled in favor of Haug Partners and its clients Shire LLC, Shire Development LLC, and Shire plc in the case LCS Group, LLC v. Shire LLC et al. (C.A. No. 1:18-cv-02688-AT). The operative complaint sought hundreds of millions of dollars in damages. The Court dismissed all claims by LCS Group with prejudice, including contract and tort claims relating to Haug Partners’ successful 2014 inter partes review of U.S. Patent No. 8,318,813. In addition to dismissing all claims, the Court imposed sanctions on LCS Group and its counsel, ordering the award of reasonable attorney fees.

Shire was represented by Haug Partners attorneys Porter F. Fleming, Jonathan A. Herstoff, and Jason A. Kanter.
