May 06, 2015

Sills Cummis & Gross recently defended MDx Medical (d/b/a vitals.com), headquartered in Lyndhurst, NJ, in a patent infringement suit brought against it by Health Grades in the District Court located in Colorado.   “As we continue to grow our venture capital practice, established and highly visible companies like MDx Medical are reaching out to Sills Cummis & Gross to assist in not just securities work, but also very significant and meaningful litigation,” said Sills Cummis & Gross Member Jeffrey Wasserman, Chair of the Venture Capital Practice.  Mr. Wasserman continued: “We have the flexibility to not only represent our clients, but also to partner with them so that both parties bear some of the financial risk throughout the process.” Although patent litigation is sometimes referred to as the “Sport of Kings” in the legal arena, Bryan Perler, MDx Medical’s CFO said, “We were very fortunate to have highly skilled and New York trained Intellectual Property attorneys such as Scott Stimpson and well-recognized business litigators such as Trent Dickey to guide us in this complex litigation.”
