A2L Consulting Boosts Its Litigation Consulting Capabilities: Seasoned IP Law
Specialist and Litigator Ryan H. Flax Joins as Managing Director
After A2L Consulting and patent litigator Ryan H. Flax, Esq. worked together on a case that
resulted in 2011’s top patent verdict and the 6th largest patent verdict in history, Ryan seized an
opportunity to do more of what he loves and become a litigation consultant. He joins A2L
Consulting as the firm is reporting its best year in its 17-year history. A2L Consulting has worked
with all of the nation’s top law firms on more than 10,000 cases with trillions of dollars
cumulatively at stake.
Washington, DC, May 03, 2012 --(PR.com)-- A2L Consulting, an award-winning litigation consulting
firm providing litigation graphics, trial technology, and jury research services, announced today the
addition of patent attorney and litigator Ryan H. Flax to the team as Managing Director, Litigation
Ryan worked directly with the A2L Consulting team (with great success) as an attorney with Dickstein
Shapiro LLP relating to a litigation resulting in 2011's largest patent verdict (damages close to $600
million, and rising); which is also the 6th largest patent verdict in history (Bruce Saffran, MD, Ph.D. v.
Johnson & Johnson et al.). “It was in doing this work along with the many presentations I have prepared
in the past that I realized how much I love to strategize over and create the visuals and themes that are
critical to conveying the facts, themes, and key positions of a case,” said Ryan. “Having worked to a very
successful outcome with the talented A2L team, I cannot imagine a better place to continue my career as I
transition from being a practicing litigator to being a litigation consultant,” he said.
Ryan Flax joins A2L Consulting on the heels of practicing Intellectual Property (IP) law as part of the
Intellectual Property team at Dickstein Shapiro LLP, a national law firm based in Washington, DC.
Over the course of his career, Ryan has obtained jury verdicts totaling well over $1 billion in damages on
behalf of his clients and has helped clients navigate the turbulent waters of their competitors' patents. He
has leveraged his significant experience in cases related to a wide array of technologies, including
medical devices and systems, semiconductors, biotechnology, chemical engineering, mechanical
engineering, software, and more.
Ken Lopez, founder and CEO of A2L Consulting commented: “I am really excited to see the amazing
value Ryan has already brought to our team and our clients in his short tenure at A2L.” He goes on to say,
“I can see our clients' visibly relax when they realize that in addition to the excellent support they are
already accustomed to getting from the A2L team - that they are also getting the added value of Ryan's
The addition of Ryan Flax to the management team at A2L Consulting occurs just as the firm's
opportunities, projects and case wins are increasing at an exponential rate. First quarter 2012 has been one
of the best revenue performance periods the firm has ever experienced, and this year's annual
performance is projected to continue on this strong trajectory.
Because much of A2L's revenue comes from IP related projects (over 60%), it is expected that, by adding
Ryan Flax to the company's broad range of expertise, the company will be able to increase its focus on IP
cases and also add unique dimensions of perspective to any case that is highly technical and/or complex
Concluded Ken Lopez: “Having already worked on cases with more than $30 billion at stake in Q1, 2012
is likely to be a record setting year for A2L Consulting, and this is just one of many exciting
announcements to come as the year progresses.”
