Dallas-based principal Ashley Moore and Houston-based principal Joshua Newcomer have been recognized in Benchmark Litigation’s inaugural “Under 40 Hot List.” The new Benchmark publication honors the achievements of the nation’s most accomplished legal partners of the age of forty or younger.  Through a process of peer review and case examination, this list has been compiled over a process of many months to assemble this collection of young, up-and-coming attorneys.

Ashley has taken many witnesses on direct and cross-examination in courtroom victories before juries, judges, and arbitration panels, and has also successfully briefed and argued numerous issues at Markman, pre-trial, and post-trial hearings.  She also has significant experience prosecuting patents before the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Ashley was a key member of the McKool Smith trial team that represented Summit 6 against Samsung, Facebook, and others involving infringement of Summit 6’s patented media uploading technology. 

Since joining McKool Smith in 2013, Joshua Newcomer has continuously contributed to a number of the firm’s most high-profile cases, and maintained active involvement in significant pro bono matters and community-based endeavors.  His recent cases include serving on the trial team that represented Freddie Mac in litigation against Deloitte & Touche LLP in which Freddie Mac alleged more than $1 billion in damages, and serving on the trial team that successfully defended Alcoa Power Generating, Inc. against the State of North Carolina concerning ownership rights to submerged land and four hydropower dams on the Yadkin River.
