Link: D.C. Law Firm's Big BlackBerry Payday. Who said Personal Injury lawyers got all the big contingency fees? Patent law and technology lawyers occasionally take contingency fee cases also, and Wiley Rein and Fielding. LLP, of D.C. is about to get a third of the 612 Million Dollar settlement received by tiny NTP in the BlackBerry settlement from RIM. It is a fitting end to the drama that was the BlackBerry patent case. Now, if I can figure out a way to write this blog on contingency...Wait, I already am. I get 100% of the fee now...Wait, I don't get paid...Oh, well. Back to law practice for me. Too bad I don't work for Wiley Rein Fielding. Their total annual revenue last year was 140 Million. The fee for the NTP litigation is 200 Million. Of course, the case has been around their office since 2001.
