For the last 15 years, Cameron Reuber has counseled plaintiff-side clientele seeking immediate results to protect market-share as well as wrongfully sued clients seeking a complete defense and absolution of all liability. Today, when not litigating cases, Cameron provides tactical oversight for clients seeking strategic or operational counseling regarding on-going litigation handled by other firms (often “BigLaw”), often assisting clients adopt strategies that help wayward, troubled, derelict, or over-budget cases get back on track. His clients range in size from transnational corporate giants to mid-sized domestic companies to the occasional local startup. Initially trained at large firms in Manhattan and Washington, DC, he was recruited to service exponentially growing prosecution and transactional business units and, in the process, help build a nationally-recognized litigation practice. Cameron was the first Leason Ellis Partner promoted from its Associate ranks and now serves as the top lieutenant in a practice dedicated to helping clients, from boardroom to courtroom, leverage the benefits of patent, trademark, copyright, unfair competition/false advertising, anti-counterfeiting/anti-piracy, Internet, and trade secret law.
Cameron has first-chair, in-depth experience in every phase of civil litigation, including trial (both bench and jury), foreign and domestic discovery, obtaining and vacating emergency relief, temporary restraining orders (TROs), preliminary injunctions, ex parte seizure orders, engaging in complex e-discovery and data forensics, as well as all manner of post-trial proceedings. One jury trial in White Plains, NY resulted in a complete defense verdict on all claims in a patent licensing matter where the plaintiff sought $23 million in damages. Another favorable jury verdict was obtained in a New Jersey patent infringement matter for two Fortune 100 clients, who were not only absolved of all patent infringement liability, but also awarded their attorney fees.
Cameron also exhibits a talent for prevailing in pre-trial proceedings, having won numerous summary judgment motions establishing as a matter of law the validity and infringement, or lack thereof, of several patents and trademarks, including five such decisions for four clients in 2015 alone. That’s not to mention post-trial proceedings: arguing, briefing, and winning numerous federal appeals across the country, including the seminal case of Herb Reed Enterprises, LLC v. Florida Entertainment Management Inc., 736 F.3d 1239 (9th Cir. 2013).
