Director Daniel E. Yonan was quoted in the article “EVs and NPEs: Automotive Firms Reveal Keys to Their IP Strategy,” published by Managing IP. From the article:

“Daniel Yonan, director at Sterne Kessler in Washington DC, says some NPEs have now become more sophisticated about trying to get lawsuits heard in their ideal venues.

Some have been filing lawsuits against automakers’ foreign parent companies, which can be sued anywhere in the US.

Yonan adds that he’s currently representing a client with a foreign parent company that’s being sued in an inconvenient venue.

If the motion to transfer gets denied, his team wants to appeal the matter to the Federal Circuit.

‘Our latest battle is to try to fight that and try to change the law so that it reflects where companies actually do business through their US subsidiaries,’ he says.
