The Keker, Van Nest & Peters trial teams included Robert Van Nest, Christa Anderson, Daniel Purcell, Gene Paige, Matthias Kamber, Steven Ragland, Reid Mullen, Michael Kwun, Edward Bayley, Kate Lazarus and Maya Karwande representing Google, and Robert, Van Nest, Brian Ferrall, David Silbert, Ajay Krishnan, Michael Kwun, Audrey Hadlock, Ryan Wong, Elizabeth McCloskey, Eduardo Santacana, David Rosen, Andrea Nill Sanchez and Christina Blais representing Arista.
