Firm's Partner, Ronald J. Schutz, Named a Top 10 Winning Attorney by National Law Journal
June 16, 2008
According to The National Law Journal's web site, "the lawyers featured in this special report share a knack for artfully swaying judges and juries and taking risks when they see the opportunity to seize an advantage in the courtroom. This year's victors were selected based on the scores of nominations offered from firms of all sizes from just about every state and union. The basic criteria required that nominees have at least one significant win within the past 18 months, and a history of noteworthy wins during the past several years."
Schutz, Chairman of the firm's Intellectual Property Litigation Group, received the honor for his recent work on Grantley Patent Holdings Ltd. v. Clear Channel Communications, Inc. where his client received an $89 million judgment. Other notable verdicts for Schutz include $110 million in Fonar Corp. v. General Electric Co., $35 million in St. Clair v. Canon, and $25 million in St. Clair v. Sony. Also, in 2003, Schutz defended a $500 million claim against IBP Co., now known as Tyson Fresh Meats, Inc., and its CEO Robert Peterson, for alleged theft of trade secrets, breach of fiduciary duty and breach of contract. Schutz was able to get the case dismissed on summary judgment, a decision that was affirmed by the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals.
Schutz is a member of the firm's Executive Board. He is an alumnus of the University of Minnesota School of Law and a 1978 graduate of Marquette University College of Engineering.
