In Core Wireless v. LG Electronics, Kayvan obtained one of the ten largest patent infringement verdicts in Texas in 2016. The jury found that LG had willfully infringed two Nokia-invented declared standard-essential telecommunications patents, and awarded running royalties. The district court subsequently awarded enhanced damages, citing deposition testimony obtained by Kayvan in which LG’s corporate representative admitted that “after thorough review of the patents-in-suit he concluded that the patents are novel and non-obvious.” 2:14-cv-912, Dkt. 47 at 2.
