Erise IP shareholders Adam Seitz and Michelle Marriott were recently recognized by Law360 and Law.com for their resounding victory at the International Trade Commission on behalf of Ergobaby and Baby Tula.

Law360 named Erise, along with Husch Blackwell’s Beau Jackson, as Legal Lions for clearing the baby carrier markers of infringing upon a rival company’s patent, and that the patent was found invalid as anticipated under 102 and invalid as obvious under 103.

In addition, the court ruled the patent is unenforceable due to “egregious” inequitable conduct by the co-inventors in an effort to deceive the patent office and bolster the strength of the patent.
