Rob Shwarts Named to Daily Journal’s 2019 Top Trade Secrets Lawyers list


Congratulations to our partner Rob Shwarts on being recognized as a Top Trade Secrets Lawyer by Daily Journal

In a profile [subscription required] of Rob, the publication highlights his success defending client Advanced Technology & Materials (AT&M), a Chinese state-owned enterprise that makes amorphous metals, and three other Chinese co-defendants against Hitachi, a Japanese rival who filed trade secret misappropriation claims against them. After developing a strategy to combat the deficiencies in the allegations against AT&M, Rob achieved a victory for his clients in the U.S. International Trade Commission, demonstrating that Hitachi’s misappropriation allegations were baseless. The complainant moved to withdraw its claim and to terminate the investigation without any concession or settlement agreement. 

Rob, who leads Orrick’s Global Trade Secrets Practice, was also named to Daily Journal’s list of 2019 Top Intellectual Property Lawyers earlier this year.
