Heim, Payne & Chorush Attorneys in Houston Secure Texas Super Lawyers Honors
HOUSTON — Four attorneys from Houston’s Heim, Payne & Chorush, LLP, have earned selections on the 2023 Texas Super Lawyers list for their distinguished work in intellectual property litigation and antitrust litigation. Founding partner and managing director Michael Heim also was named one of the Top 100 attorneys in Houston for the fourth time.
Firm partners Leslie Payne, Russell Chorush, and Eric Enger join Mr. Heim on the list for their intellectual property work, with Mr. Chorush earning additional recognition for antitrust litigation. All the honorees are perennially ranked on the Super Lawyers list: Mr. Chorush and Mr. Enger for five straight years; Mr. Payne for 11 years; and Mr. Heim for 20 consecutive years.
Thomson Reuters creates the annual Super Lawyers list with multiple stages of independent research and peer nominations and evaluations. No more than 5 percent of all Texas attorneys make the final list.
This is the latest recognition for Heim Payne & Chorush attorneys, many of whom were singled out for recognition earlier this year by Best Lawyers in America, IAM Patent 1000, and the prestigious Chambers USA rankings.
Last week, Heim, Payne & Chorush helped Texas-based Atlas Global Technologies win a $37.5 million patent infringement verdict against China-based TP-Link Technologies Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. The jury awarded the full amount requested by Atlas Global after finding that TP-Link infringed eight of the company’s patents to make products sold by such retailers as Costco, Target, Office Depot, and Amazon.com.
