Fish & Richardson Receives Top “Band 1” National Rankings for Intellectual Property and ITC Practices in Chambers USA 2019

Fish & Richardson has received top “Band 1” national rankings for its Intellectual Property (IP) practice and its International Trade Commission (ITC) patent litigation practice in the 2019 edition of Chambers USA. Fish also received top rankings for its regional IP and patent prosecution practices in California. Thirteen Fish attorneys, including principal Juanita Brooks in San Diego, were selected as IP leaders.

Fish’s California team is known for its expertise representing “pharmaceutical sector clients, including in ANDA litigation” and was praised for their “deep bench, good technical expertise and client service.” “They are a firm we go to for more of our high-level, more complex matters.” Chambers noted that the firm’s prosecution practice is “well-known…for IP portfolio management matters, including trademark filings and the development of protection strategies.” 

Brooks was singled out as a notable practitioner who is “held in high regard for her extensive experience handling a range of complex patent infringement disputes.” One client refers to her as “the Judge Whisperer” because “she owns the courtroom.” 

The Chambers Guides have been ranking the best law firms and lawyers since 1990, and cover 190 countries across the world. Inclusion in Chambers is based solely on the findings of its research teams, who conduct extensive, confidential interviews with thousands of lawyers and clients to identify the leading law firms and lawyers worldwide. Individual lawyers are ranked based on their legal knowledge and experience, ability, effectiveness, and client service. Law firms are ranked on the same qualities, as well as overall effectiveness and capability. Rankings are grouped in bands from 1-6, with 1 being the best.
