Haynes and Boone, LLP Partners Ken Parker and M.C. Sungaila have been recognized in Southern California’s 2017 Super Lawyers (Thomson Reuters) annual award listing.
Parker is named in the Intellectual Property Litigation category. At the firm, he chairs the Intellectual Property Litigation Section. In addition to litigating in his home state of California, Parker handles cases in courts throughout the country, including patent, trademark, copyright and trade secrets cases. His work spans industries ranging from semiconductors and medical devices to consumer products and real estate. His most recent jury verdict was an $8.1 million trademark infringement verdict for his client against a publicly-traded defendant.
Sungaila is recognized in the Appellate category. At the core of her broad appellate practice is Sungaila’s passion for the rule of law and for helping shape undeveloped areas within it. She has briefed and argued appeals raising cutting-edge and core business issues, and helped secure important rights for women and girls nationally and internationally. Clients call on her to craft approaches to emerging legal issues across multiple cases and jurisdictions and to provide pretrial and trial consultations in cases where an appeal by either side appears inevitable or a “key case” outcome might impact a whole series of cases for a client.
