Allen & Overy’s U.S. IP Technology Disputes team led by Shamita Etienne-Cummings recently achieved a second complete jury-rendered victory for Wonderland Switzerland AG (Wonderland), the designer and manufacturer of Graco child car seats, in a patent infringement litigation trial against Evenflo.
The jury under Delaware Federal Judge Jon McCalla found in favor of Wonderland on all patents regarding car seat safety designs. This case win builds on A&O’s previous victory for Wonderland in September 2021 where Federal Judge Richard Andrews ruled that Evenflo owed Wonderland an on-going royalty after finding infringement of all three of the asserted patents.
“Fighting to protect our client’s patents and safeguarding their innovation is our team’s top priority,” said Shamita Etienne-Cummings, IP Partner, Washington D.C. “By securing a second complete victory for Wonderland on all counts, our team has further bolstered Wonderland’s position as a leader and pioneer of the car seat market.”
Wonderland is a leading Taiwan innovator and Swiss-based company supplying car seats, strollers, and other nursery goods. Its leading brands Nuna and Joie are sold globally.
This victory comes from Allen & Overy’s U.S. Technology team, which was established in August 2021 and is represented on this matter by Noah Brumfield, Shamita Etienne-Cummings, Eric Lancaster, David Tennant and Bijal Vakil and associates Megan Ines, Majesty Jala, Katherine Kieckhafer and Jacob Rothenberg.
This U.S. Allen & Overy team has also recently successfully defended Google LLC (Google) in multiple trials before the International Trade Commission (ITC) and successfully represented Meta in multiple proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB).
