In January 2014, Craig Smyser and Justin Waggoner obtained a complete victory for their client in an ICDR arbitration. Smyser and Waggoner, along with SKV associate Razvan Ungureanu, represented a leading energy company engaged in Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) related businesses against one of the world's largest integrated energy companies.

Judgment entered in a significant patent infringement case. Lee Kaplan participated in a victory for a Schlumberger affiliate in a patent infringment jury trial involving offshore marine seismic technology. At trial Mr. Kaplan conducted the voir dire examination of the jury and the examination and cross examination of both sides' damage experts. One accused infringer settled during trial for over $75 million. On May 7, 2014, the Court entered a judgment for $123.8 million against ION Geophysical. ION is expected to appeal. Mr. Kaplan is also acting as co-counsel in a separate patent infringement suit on behalf of the client against another accused infringer.

On June 12, 2013, Craig Smyser and Justin Waggoner obtained a jury verdict for their client, Dr. Diana Fite, as a derivative plaintiff in a breach of fiduciary duty and fraud case after a three-week jury trial in the 334th District Court in Harris County.
