Fish & Richardson Receives Eight National IP Rankings – Including  Five Tier 1 Rankings – from Managing Intellectual Property

Fish & Richardson has received five national Tier 1 IP rankings in Patent Prosecution, Patent Contentious, Life Sciences, PTAB Litigation, and ITC Litigation in Managing Intellectual Property (MIP) magazine’s annual ranking of the top IP law firms in the United States. The firm also received top national rankings in the Copyright & Related Rights, Trademark Contentious, and Trademark Prosecution categories.  

Fish received top “Highly Recommended” regional rankings in the following categories: Intellectual Property (Delaware, Massachusetts, and Texas); Patent Contentious (California, D.C., Minnesota, and New York); and Patent Prosecution (California, D.C., Minnesota, and New York). The firm received “Recommended” rankings in Intellectual Property in Georgia and in Copyright & Related Rights and Trademark Prosecution in New York.

Last month, MIP named Fish the 2019 U.S. Firm of the Year in both the ITC and Specialty IP categories, and the regional Patent Prosecution (Northeast) Firm of the Year. Fish earned its Firm of the Year awards for having a remarkable year across every venue – garnering more high-profile IP wins in district court, at the ITC, at the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board than any other firm.

MIP’s independent research is based on a weighted system of peer and client feedback, combined with a review of information obtained from surveys conducted with law firms and their clients in over 80 jurisdictions around the world. Based on this research, firms are ranked in tiers in each category in each jurisdiction. The tiers reflect the perception of the leading firms in each market with the top tier listing those firms regarded as having the strongest practices in each category.
