Appeals involving complex intellectual property issues and technology law have increased dramatically. These complicated cases go to a handful of experienced firms that focus on this highly specialized work. In this elite group, Fish stands out.

Fish was recently named to the National Law Journal’s “Appellate Hot List” for significant appellate wins and an impressive overall track record. We have handled almost 150 appeals over the past five years covering a broad range of venues (district court, ITC, and PTAB), technologies (computer hardware, pharmaceutical, medical devices) on nearly every imaginable issue (validity, infringement, damages, standing, inventorship, and many more).

We provide to our clients the most experience and widest-ranging appellate practices in the country. For example, we have 25 former Federal Circuit clerks which allows us to provide an appellate team specifically tailored to the subject matter and issues on appeal. Furthermore, we are consistently called upon for our highly regarded amicus curiae counsel and have filed numerous amicus briefs in the Federal Circuit and Supreme Court for Fortune 500 clients.

Finally, Fish has been instrumental in shaping patent law through our work at the Federal Circuit and the Supreme Court. Due to this experience, we have the unique ability to identify the best cases that can lead to these changes, spot important legal trends earlier, and position cases best for appeal.
