Fenwick represented eSilicon in fighting a two-front litigation against Silicon Space Technology. After an acquisition by eSilicon, the business relationship between eSilicon and SST soured. The parties had no written agreements governing any ownership, transfer or license provisions. SST filed a trade secret misappropriation lawsuit in Austin, Texas. eSilicon filed a copyright infringement lawsuit in the Northern District of California. The case was settled during the pre-trial proceedings of the trade secret case pending in Austin.
The Fenwick litigation team was led by Rodger Cole and Ryan Tyz.
