Four Irell & Manella LLP partners—Morgan Chu, Andrei Iancu and David Siegel—were named to the Los Angeles and San Francisco Daily Journal’s 2011 list of the “Top 100 Lawyers in California.”

Morgan Chu was recognized for his court victories on behalf of TiVo, resulting in over $600 million being paid to TiVo and a finding of contempt against the defendant EchoStar, and for his work on behalf of St. Jude Medical Inc. in obtaining a $27.1 million jury verdict—the largest ever handed down in the Western District of Arkansas in any area of law— in a patent infringement case against Access Closure Inc.

Andrei Iancu was noted for intellectual property litigation, including his role in successfully representing TiVo in its dispute with DISH Network and EchoStar that centered on TiVo’s “Time Warp” digital video recorder technology.

David Siegel was recognized for securities litigation, including the representation of Angelo Mozilo and obtaining favorable outcomes in a series of securities and shareholder lawsuits.
