Excerpt from Mr. Jacobs's on-line biography at Morrison Foerster:

"Many of the world's leading companies call on Michael Jacobs to lead trial teams in their most complex litigation. In 2012, he served as co-lead counsel in the year's two highest-profile intellectual property battles, including a high-profile smartphone case leading to a jury verdict of over $1 billion. He has represented information technology and life sciences companies in more than 100 patent lawsuits, often prevailing at early stages of the dispute. Chambers has described him as a "real star" and a "pillar of the Silicon Valley patent litigation community." Mr. Jacobs is the co-founder of the firm's Intellectual Property Practice Group, and currently heads its Life Sciences Practice Group.

The Stanley H. Mervis Lectureship in Intellectual Property was created in memory of Stanley Mervis in 2003 by his family and friends. Mervis, a member of the William & Mary Law School Class of 1950, was patent counsel for Polaroid Corporation for most of his career and was actively involved in important patent and intellectual property issues.
