McKool Smith is pleased to announce the promotion of an attorney to principal in the firm’s New York offices, effective January 1, 2017.
“Our new principal has made their mark in the firm by demonstrating true talent and a high level of client service.” said David Sochia, McKool Smith’s Managing Principal. “We look forward to their continued success.”
Also in New York, Jonathan Yim focuses his practice on intellectual property, commercial litigation, and white collar matters. He was a member of the McKool Smith trial team that secured a patent infringement judgment of over $290 million and a permanent injunction for i4i L.P. and i4i Inc. against Microsoft Corp, which was affirmed unanimously by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2011. Over the past three years, Jonathan has conducted several extensive investigations abroad in connection with engagements involving a broad range of white collar matters, including allegations concerning money laundering, tax evasion, and art fraud, among others.
With more than 180 trial lawyers across offices in Austin, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Marshall, New York, Silicon Valley, and Washington, D.C., McKool Smith has established a reputation as one of America’s leading trial firms. Since 2006, the firm has secured nine nine-figure jury verdicts and ten eight-figure jury verdicts. The firm has also won more VerdictSearch and The National Law Journal "Top 100 Verdicts" over the last ten years than any other law firm in the country. Courtroom successes like these have earned McKool Smith critical acclaim and helped the firm become what The Wall Street Journal describes as “one of the biggest law firm success stories of the past decade.” McKool Smith represents clients in complex commercial litigation, intellectual property, bankruptcy, and white collar defense matters.
