John Hueston and Doug Dixon have been named to the inaugural list of “Leading Commercial Litigators” by the Daily Journal.
“I had more trials in the last two years than I had in any other two-year period of my life,” noted Mr. Hueston. He further explained that he handled six trials in those years, more even than when he was a federal prosecutor. Daily Journal editors further described his recent successes including the largest trademark award in U.S. history, the largest unfair business practices Lanham Act jury award in U.S. history, and “the only opioids trial that resulted in a win for an opioid manufacturer.”
The Daily Journal editors noted Doug Dixon’s focus on intellectual property law, white collar crime and general commercial disputes. He currently represents a leading online dating service Match Group LLC in a bet-the-company suit against Google accusing the tech giant of illegally monopolizing and exploiting the markets for the distribution of mobile apps for Android devises. “Google is engaging in business practices in its Play Store that harm developers and users by tacking on a service fee and requiring developers to use Google’s proprietary payment system so that Google gets a cut,” Dixon said. Editors also noted his recent victory for Amazon, obtaining summary judgement of non-infringement in a patent matter asserted by MasterObjects, a serial patent litigator.
