Partner Rick Richmond Named among California’s “Top IP” Lawyers

Jenner & Block Partner Rick Richmond was named among California’s “Top IP Lawyers” by the Daily Journal.  Mr. Richmond is among only 77 lawyers recognized throughout the state.

The newspaper highlights Mr. Richmond’s 2016 victory on behalf of client Epic Systems Corp.  In that case, Mr. Richmond helped secure one of the largest-ever trade secrets verdicts: $940 million for the client, which had accused Tata Consultancy Services Ltd. of stealing information relating to software that Epic created.

In the profile of Mr. Richmond, he observed that the theft of trade secrets likely will become more frequent as technology evolves.
