A team of Haynes and Boone, LLP lawyers secured wins on behalf of Ericsson Inc. and RPX Corp. in a patent dispute argued before the Patent Trial and Review Board.

Here is an excerpt of a Law360 article about the case:

The Patent Trial and Appeal Board has doled out wins to Ericsson Inc. and RPX Corp. in a dispute over two network bandwidth patents held by Texas-based software company Iridescent Networks Inc., ruling that all the challenged claims in both patents are invalid.

RPX and Ericsson are represented by Andrew Lowes, Adam Fowles, John Russell Emerson and Clint Wilkins of Haynes and Boone, LLP.
