Fulfillium, Inc. v. ReShape Medical, Inc. et al.
The Gardella Grace team obtained patents for medical device company Fulfillium, Inc. and successfully enforced those patents and related trade secrets against multiple defendants in multiple forums. Our team assumed responsibility for the portfolio and executed expedited prosecution strategies that yielded new, strengthened patents for the company. We then represented Fulfillium, Inc. when an accused infringer filed inter partes review petitions against those new patents, and in a victory for the company, those petitions were denied. Underlying litigation settled on favorable terms with multiple defendants and the litigation against one remaining defendant is ongoing.
