Continuing the growth of the New York office and increasing its strength in pharmaceutical and biotechnology patent litigation, Fish recently announced that Brian Coggio joined the firm’s New York office. He comes to the firm from Greenberg Traurig where he was a Shareholder.

Mr. Coggio has extensive patent litigation and trial experience in federal courts, including actions instituted under the Hatch-Waxman Act, and before the International Trade Commission, as well as in worldwide litigations. He has represented clients across a wide range of industries, with particularly strong experience in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and chemical industries.

“We are very pleased to welcome Brian to the firm,” said David Francescani, Managing Principal of the New York office. “He has an impressive track record as a patent litigator and brings further depth to our firm that will enable us to continue to expand our work in the pharmaceutical, biotech and chemical industries.”

Mr. Coggio started his career at the Intellectual Property firm Pennie & Edmonds before moving to a general practice firm.

“Brian’s return to an IP firm is yet another sign that an IP firm is the best place for any lawyer who seeks the most challenging and innovative IP work,” Mr. Francescani continued. “I am very happy to return to a firm that focuses on Intellectual Property,” Mr. Coggio said. “Fish & Richardson has a remarkable reputation, known far and wide as an ‘IP Powerhouse,’ and I am looking forward to working with the very best in my field.”

Mr. Coggio received a J.D. from Fordham University School of Law, cum laude, where he was Editor of the Fordham Law Review, an L.L.M. in Trade Regulations from New York University School of Law, and his Bachelor’s in Chemical Engineering from Manhattan College. He is an Adjunct Professor at Fordham University School of Law, where he teaches a course in patent litigation.
