Hueston Hennigan filed a lawsuit on behalf of ClearOne, a global provider of audio and visual communication solutions, against Shure Incorporated (Shure) for trade secret misappropriation and patent infringement. The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.

As noted in ClearOne’s press release, “This is yet another lawsuit we have filed against Shure—a very large ClearOne competitor—in an effort to protect our substantial investment in innovation over the years,” said Zee Hakimoglu, chair and chief executive officer of ClearOne. “U.S. laws encourage innovation by awarding such investments with intellectual property rights. When others fail to respect those rights, we will take action to protect them so that we can continue delivering innovative products and superior customer experiences, as well as ensure fair competition in the marketplace. We are confident that Shure will be held responsible for its brazen actions.”

The Hueston Hennigan team includes Doug Dixon, Christina Von der Ahe Rayburn, Sourabh Mishra, Michael Acquah, Neil Anderson, and Karen Younkins.
