Robert Burford represented M.W. Kellogg, successfully defending against fraud claims made by Quantum Chemical Corporation. The case involved M.W. Kellogg's proprietary millisecond technology that was installed in Quantum's polyethylene plant in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Quantum claimed more than $300 million in damages. After a several-week trial, the jury found no liability against M.W. Kellogg and assessed more than $13 million in damages against Quantum on a counter-claim for trade secret theft.
