Arnold Porter Obtains $35 Million in Damages for Boston Scientific

December 14, 2018

Arnold & Porter secured more than $35 million in damages for longtime client Boston Scientific Corporation (Boston Scientific) in a significant jury verdict win against Edwards Lifesciences Corporation (Edwards).

The complicated patent case involved multiple patents related to transcatheter heart valve technology, including one patent asserted by Boston Scientific against Edwards and three patents asserted by Edwards against Boston Scientific. After a 10-day trial in the District Court of Delaware, the jury found infringement on all patent claims Boston Scientific asserted and upheld the patent's validity, and simultaneously found that Boston Scientific did not infringe the patents Edwards asserted.

The Arnold & Porter team was led by partner Matthew Wolf, who chairs the firm's Intellectual Property practice group, and included Intellectual Property partners Ed Han, Marc Cohn, and Philip Marsh; counsel Amy DeWitt; associates William Louden, Tara Williamson, and William Young, Jr.; and Litigation associate Mike Kientzle
