BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In advance of a federal jury trial scheduled for this month, Marisa Pawelko, an inventor in arts and crafts products, and Hasbro, Inc. have reached a settlement of Pawelko's case against Hasbro, Inc. for misappropriation of trade secrets and breach of a confidentiality agreement relating to Pawelko's "Liquid Mosaic" invention, captioned Marisa Pawelko, D/B/A The Modern Surrealist v. Hasbro, Inc. C.A. No. 16-201-M (District of Rhode Island). The terms of the settlement are confidential.
Pawelko was represented in the lawsuit by a team of lawyers from Fitch Law Partners LLP.
Pawelko says, "Jonathan W. Fitch, Nathalie K. Salomon, Ryan M. Cunningham and Terrance D. Lanier successfully represented me in the misappropriation of trade secret and breach of contract lawsuit that I brought against Hasbro. The issues of the case were very nuanced and complex. The FITCH team had the focus and intelligence to understand and remember everything from top to bottom. Throughout the entire process they were always well prepared, professional, sensitive to my concerns, and had all the right answers. Seeing that I was in such good hands, I trusted their strategic advice every step of the way, and I could not have been happier with my team. In addition to being a total class act in their work, they were an absolute pleasure to collaborate with. The process of working with them was so enjoyable, that once the case was settled, I actually felt sad that our work together had come to an end."
