In describing the firm and its practitioners, IAM noted:
Potent contentious force Robins Kaplan has what it takes to emerge victorious from courtroom battles and its many savvy trial lawyers do so time and again in commercially consequential patent disputes... Exceptional leadership is provided by many, including executive board chair Ronald J. Schutz, health and life sciences captain Jake M. Holdreith, post-grant chair Cyrus A. Morton, IP and technology litigation group head Christopher K. Larus, and global business and technology sourcing disputes helmsman Christopher A. Seidl; all are seasoned trial vets with abundant narrative gifts and compelling powers of persuasion. Special praise this year goes to Holdreith, a “personable, pragmatic, efficient and reliable lawyer who does a wonderful job distilling down complex issues and giving straightforward advice,” while remaining “even-keeled in heated, antagonistic court settings.” Larus and Patrick M. Arenz are also commended: Larus as a senior lead counsel who not only “knows how to tell a good story,” but “stays on top of all aspects of his cases;” and Arenz as an “excellent, thorough, and focused cross-examiner.” Not satisfied with standard setting in the litigation field in Minnesota, Robins Kaplan also acquits itself with distinction in licensing and IP monetization – subjects that Larus knows a great deal about.
