One of the best attorneys in patent litigation
Our company retained Mr. Ted Polasek to monetize the company’s patent portfolio. Mr. Polasek supported our company in litigating several patent infringement lawsuits against several mobile phone and tablet manufacturers and a retailer that sold mobile phones, tablets and laptops. These manufacturers are giants and were well represented by top lawyers. All these cases were difficult, but Mr. Polasek worked diligently on these cases, and we were satisfied and delighted with the outcomes achieved by Mr. Polasek. Mr. Polasek is diligent, thorough, strong against the parties on the other side, but faithful at all times to his client. He is always considering litigation strategies for the best interests of his client. Mr. Polasek is one of the best attorneys for patent litigation. We would like to thank Mr. Polasek for all the work he did for us, and we could not come this far without his support and contribution.
