CommentA unique collaboration between four competing law firms and the in-house legal team at HP secured them a victory in a breach of contract case against Oracle. The case, worth more than $3bn, was fought through an unusual alliance between the firms and its client to convince a jury that Oracle had breached its contract and destroyed HP’s Itanium server business.
