Lane Powell represented the defendant, Pretika Corp. in a patent infringement matter relating to facial scrub brushes (Clarisonic) filed by Pacific Bioscience Labs, Inc. in the United States District Court in Seattle, Washington. The case was stayed by the district court after Pretika sought reexamination of the patent-in-suit and the US Patent and Trademark Office found substantial new issues of patentability of that patent. Shortly after Pacific Biosciences was purchased by L’Oreal, Lane Powell assisted Pretika to negotiate a settlement agreement under terms favorable to Pretika
