Fish & Richardson Receives Top “Gold” Ranking from IAM Patent 1000 for National Patent Litigation Practice

Fish & Richardson has received the elite “Gold Band” national ranking in the Litigation category in the 2018 edition of IAM Patent 1000: The World’s Leading Patent Professionals. Fish received the top national ranking in the Plaintiff firm category as well. Fish’s offices in California, Delaware, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, Texas, and Washington, D.C. also received top rankings in the Prosecution and Litigation categories.

IAM noted that, “As one of the most prolific, best-rounded and successful patent outfits in the United States, Fish & Richardson needs no introduction. The ebbs and flows of the market have caused concern for many boutiques, but not Fish & Richardson, which maintains a first-rate post-grant practice and is home to world-class trial lawyers who are in hot demand up and down the country.”

Juanita Brooks and Jonathan Singer of Fish’s San Diego office and Michael Headley and Hans Troesch of Fish’s Redwood City office were selected as “leading patent professionals” in the California ranking.
