Stein Sperling civil litigation attorneys Jeff Schwaber, Deanna Peters and Judy Cornwell teamed as local counsel with Williams & Connolly in a landmark breach of contract case adjudicated in Montgomery County Circuit Court. The 10-count suit was brought on behalf of Mirowski Family Ventures LLC against Boston Scientific Corp as a result of unpaid royalties and other violations of law, including breaches of the parties’ license agreement relating to a breakthrough medical device developed by Dr. Michel Mirowski. A Montgomery County jury found Boston Scientific owes Mirowski Family Ventures LLC approximately $86 million in unpaid royalties and another $222 million for other financial damages arising out of Boston Scientific’s conduct. Stein Sperling’s civil litigation group often serves as local counsel in Montgomery County, Maryland, and in other Maryland state and federal courts, when Washington, D.C.-based and other out-of-state firms have cases in those jurisdictions.

The decision was covered by local and national media, as well as medical device industry news outlets:
