Daily Journal Recognizes Jonathan K. Waldrop as a 2022 Top Plaintiff Lawyer in California
Kasowitz Benson Torres partner Jonathan K. Waldrop has been named a 2022 Top Plaintiff Lawyer in California by the Daily Journal. The annual list highlights California’s leading plaintiff lawyers who have had significant achievements over the past two years.
In his profile, the publication highlights Mr. Waldrop’s precedent-setting victory before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) in which he and the Kasowitz team, on behalf of Fintiv, defeated Apple’s petition for inter partes review of Fintiv’s patent at issue in its infringement lawsuit against Apple—the first time the PTAB had issued a discretionary denial of such a petition based on the pendency of a parallel patent action. The publication also highlights that Mr. Waldrop and his team were part of the first trial before Judge Alan Albright of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas. Judge Albright now covers almost a quarter of all new U.S. patent litigation cases.
