The lawyers at CHEN MALIN LLP form solutions using a multi-disciplinary approach because playbook answers are rarely effective in addressing our clients’ concerns. We practice at the intersection of complex technology transactions and litigation. In transactions, the concessions that we secured led a Fortune 50 technology company to seek our counsel after the deal closed; we lead transactions that impact 11-figures in annual operating revenues; and we have significant depth in IT transactions, including negotiations involving SAP and Oracle. In litigation, we have multiple trial victories against teams from AmLaw 100 and well-known plaintiff’s firms–in cases where observers expected adverse results; we secured multiple 8-figure recoveries; we have won cases using theories that the same court has rejected–when those theories were advanced by others; our cross examinations have repeatedly had case-dispositive effect; and we are one of a handful of teams in the country that have successfully litigated a F/RAND (patent) case to verdict.

Our clients consist primarily of Fortune 100 and Global Fortune 500 companies, and our work has led to recognitions in Benchmark Litigation, Best Lawyers, Best Lawyers Best Law Firms (Tier 1 for 3 practice areas), Chambers USA, Managing IP (IP Stars), Martindale-Hubbell (AV), and SuperLawyers (TX).

We welcome alternative-fee arrangements where the value that we bring can be measured against results. And we routinely partner with other firms, to assist on transactions, as local counsel, or with trials–whether in the context of mock trials or as a part of the trial team.
