A Frightfully Full Edition of Litigator of the Week Runners-Ups and Shout Outs
Craig Primis, Kasdin Miller Mitchell, Erin Johnston, Alexia Brancato and Caroline Stephens Milner received a shout out for The American Lawyer Litigation Daily’s “Litigator of the Week” contest for their work for Boeing.
... Shout out to a team at Kirkland & Ellis representing Boeing that knocked out trade secret claims in a long-running suit brought by Alabama Aircraft Industries Inc. AAII initially sued Boeing in 2011 in the wake of the companies’ scuttled agreement to jointly bid for maintenance work on the U.S. Air Force’s KC-135 Stratotanker fleet. AAII was initially seeking hundreds of millions of dollars in damages, but its recovery was limited to a 2020 verdict of a little more than $2 million on contract claims. The Kirkland team on the matter included Craig Primis, Kasdin Miller Mitchell, Erin Johnston, Alexia Brancato and Caroline Stephens Milner.
