many small, and several large, lawsuits for patent infringement, trademark and trade dress infringement,
trade secret misappropriation, unfair competition (false advertising) and copyright infringement.  Several suits

as the CEO of a  start-up company financed by venture

The company designed, manufactured and sold fiber optic data
communication equipment.  After five years the company was
sold to a listed company.
