Dallas firm Rose Walker’s founder, Martin Rose, named to Lawdragon 500
Rose recently won a $7.3 million verdict for video game maker MumboJumbo.
DALLAS Courtroom veteran Martin Rose of Dallas’ Rose•Walker, L.L.P., has again been named one of the Lawdragon 500 Leading Lawyers in America, an honor reserved for fewer than one percent of the nation’s lawyers.
The Lawdragon honor is just the latest recognition for Rose, who is consistently included in the listing of Texas Super Lawyers, and has been featured in D CEO magazine and the Dallas Business Journal as one of the city’s top business litigators.
To select the Lawdragon 500, the editorial staff at Lawdragon conducted extensive research by soliciting nominations from thousands of attorneys, judges, and other legal professionals to name the country's top lawyers.
“It’s always an honor to receive recognition, especially knowing that it comes from others in the profession,” Rose says. “Of course, the recognition that matters most will always be the kind you receive from clients and juries.”
Rose’s trial record for 2010 includes a jury verdict and judgment in the amount of $7.3 million on behalf of Dallas-based video game maker MumboJumbo against rival developer PopCap.
On the defense side, Rose won an important reversal on behalf of his client L-3 Communications in a trade secrets case against rival defense contractor Lockheed. Last summer, a federal jury in Atlanta awarded Lockheed $37 million in the case and Lockheed’s attorneys asked for an additional $17 million in fees. This year, however, the judge set aside the jury verdict and ordered a new trial. The court found discovery abuse that probably affected the outcome of the jury trial.
