Lead Counsel
2008 - 2011

Motorola Mobility is an American telecommunications equipment corporation headquartered in Chicago, Illinois. Motorola Mobility was formerly known as the Mobile Devices division of Motorola until it was spun off as a separate entity in January 2011. Motorola Mobility consists of the Mobile Devices business which produces smartphones and the Home business which produces set-top boxes, end-to-end video solutions, and cable modems. On January 4, 2011, Motorola's mobile device and set-top box division was spun off into a separate company as Motorola Mobility, while the remainder of the company was renamed Motorola Solutions. Shortly after the split, Google, the lead developer of Android itself, announced in August 2011 that it would acquire Motorola Mobility for US$12.5 billion, subject to regulatory approval. Google's intent for the purchase was to acquire the company's portfolio of patents so it could adequately protect other Android vendors from lawsuits. The deal closed in May 2012, after which it also sold its set-top box business to Arris Group. In late 2013, Motorola notably launched two new smartphones, the Moto X and Moto G, and unveiled Project Ara, a concept for a modular smartphone.
