Stein Sperling’s commercial litigation attorneys were part of the winning team that secured the nation’s seventh largest verdict in 2014, as recognized in The National Law Journal’s "Top 100 Verdicts in 2014" listing.

The National Law Journal's VerdictSearch affiliate reviews court records each year to compile a listing of the nation's largest verdicts. The 2014 listing ranked the $309 million award in favor of Mirowski Family Ventures LLC number seven among the largest verdicts in the country last year.

Stein Sperling attorneys Jeff Schwaber, Deanna Peters and Judy Cornwell teamed as local counsel for Williams & Connolly in the 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.

In September 2014, 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.
