July 10, 2020

Cleary Gottlieb partners Nowell Bamberger, David Herrington, and Joon Kim were named finalists for The American Lawyer Litigation Daily’s “Litigators of the Week” for securing a significant victory on behalf of Medytox in a case regarding misappropriated trade secrets.

The Cleary team represented Medytox in a decision issued on July 6, 2020, by an administrative law judge (ALJ) of the U.S. International Trade Commission in Washington, D.C. In his initial determination, the ALJ agreed with Medytox and Allergan that Daewoong Pharmaceuticals Co. Ltd. misappropriated trade secrets belonging to Medytox and used them to develop a botulinum neurotoxin product known as Jeuveau and, together with Evolus Inc., to import Jeuveau into the United States.
