National trial firm Robins Kaplan announced that Patrick Arenz has been named partner at the firm. Patrick M. Arenz (Minneapolis) focuses his practice on litigating high-stakes intellectual property cases. As trial counsel, he recently secured a final judgment of over $6 million in favor of his client Megdal Associates in an IP license dispute. He is also chair of Robins Kaplan’s Pro Bono Committee and recently achieved a precedent-setting pro bono victory when he secured a decisive $950,000 jury verdict in a federal lawsuit on behalf of a sex tourism victim who was sexually assaulted by a U.S. citizen in Laos when she was 14 years old. This was believed to be the first civil jury verdict ever in a sex tourism case.
