It’s a Good Time to Be a Partner at Washington’s Dickstein Shapiro

May 21, 2008 The good times just roll on at Washington’s Dickstein Shapiro, where ace patent attorney Gary Hoffman has nailed down a $501-million win in a case involving heart-stent coatings.

Dickstein has been a trendsetter among national corporate law firms in taking cases on partial contingency rather than a strict hourly rate. As a result, Dickstein’s 150 partners will share in a huge windfall that could net each partner an additional $600,000 if the award against Boston Scientific is upheld on appeal.
