Jeremy Anderson, a principal in the Delaware office of Fish & Richardson, leads and tries corporate and complex commercial cases in the Delaware Court of Chancery, a non-jury court that is recognized internationally as the preeminent forum for resolving corporate and technology disputes.
Mr. Anderson handles technology-related cases that are brought to protect and defend the intellectual property of companies across several industry sectors such as Life Sciences, Computer Software, and Media and Entertainment. He has successfully represented clients in actions involving non-practicing practicing (NPEs) regarding the fraudulent transfer of patents and breaches of covenants not to sue. He obtained a motion to dismiss a multi-forum shareholder derivative lawsuit that was based on his client’s substantial monetary settlement with the federal government recently, and in another case defended a preliminary injunction seeking to stop a technology company from filing a patent infringement action in federal court.
Mr. Anderson is the co-author of Technology Litigation in the Delaware Court of Chancery, a treatise that provides comprehensive analysis of technology-related claims such as breach of fiduciary duty, misappropriation of trade secrets, breach of contract, unfair competition, civil conspiracy, and aiding and abetting. He is a thought leader on stock appraisal actions, and has authored articles that have been quoted in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Financial Times and Bloomberg. He frequently contributes to the Chancery Daily as a guest columnist and to Fish & Richardson’s commercial litigation blog.
Governor Jack Markell appointed Mr. Anderson to a seven-year term on the Public Integrity Commission, which implements Delaware’s ethics and financial disclosure laws, in May 2011. Mr. Anderson is a member of the Delaware Bar Association, where he served as Assistant to the President and as member of the Executive Committee from 2010-2011. In October 2007, Mr. Anderson founded the Delaware Chapter of the J. Reuben Clark Law Society, a service organization that strives to promote fairness and virtue founded on the rule of law. He has been named a "Delaware Rising Star" by Super Lawyers in multiple years.
