David Doyle Named "Winning" Attorney By National Law Journal


David Doyle has been named to the National Law Journal's 2010 "Winning" list, an annual feature profiling lawyers with at least one significant trial win in the past 18 months and a history of noteworthy victories over the past several years. The "winners" all employed unique strategies at trial, and share a knack for artfully swaying judges and juries. The publication only chose 11 litigators from scores of nominations; each one is, in the words of the National Law Journal, "the model of the modern litigator, with a great story to tell."

David was singled out for his role as lead attorney in the market-shaping trial victory he secured for Applied Biosystems in a patent infringement case against Illumina. David's win protected Applied Biosystems’ state-of-the-art SOLiDTM System, which today is in use in most of the world’s largest DNA-sequencing centers. In its editorial, the National Law Journal said that "David Doyle has mastered the job of explaining patent law and its application to life sciences in a way that doesn't leave jurors saying, 'Huh?' "

This marks the third consecutive year that a MoFo lawyer has been named to this prestigious list. Arturo Gonzalez was named in 2009 for his victory on behalf of Hansen Medical Inc., and Jim Bennett in 2008 for his success on behalf of JDS Uniphase Corp.
