McKool Smith principal Blair Jacobs provided his insights in Law360 article, “5 Patent Cases To Watch In The Second Half of 2021.” The 5 patent cases mentioned are American Axle v. Neapco, Apple v. Iancu, VLSI v. Intel, and GlaxoSmithKline v. Teva. On the VLSI v. Intel case, Blair noted, "historically, the Federal Circuit hasn't let such large verdicts hold up. If we were to get a significant verdict like VLSI that survived an appeal on damages, that would be really, really meaningful to the patent community, in that it would probably increase the number of filings, and perhaps allow a bit more of a framework for plaintiffs looking to maximize damages but not risk reversal on appeal.” Read the article here.
