The firm served as lead counsel on behalf of a global supplier of IT solutions for banks. Disc Link Corp. (“Disc Link”), a subsidiary of the patent holding company Acacia Research Technologies (“Acacia”), filed a patent infringement action against numerous defendants, including our client. The plaintiff asserted that our client infringed one of their U.S. patents.

The parties settled.
