John Desmarais Named Litigator of the Week

Accolades

The American Lawyer named John Desmarais, founding partner of Desmarais LLP, “Litigator of the Week” for securing an $82.5 million verdict for IBM on July 27, 2018. A Delaware jury found Groupon had willfully infringed four of IBM’s e-commerce patents. Desmarais told The American Lawyer that he and his team used a 30-year-old IBM commercial to show how the patents provided the foundation of modern e-commerce. “I think we had a very compelling story,” he said. The $82.5 million award was one of the five largest verdicts Desmarais has obtained since founding Desmarais LLP in 2010.
