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.

Our appellate experience stretches back more than 100 years:

  • We are one of the most active appellate law firms handling high-profile, high-stakes intellectual property cases before the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
  • We have been named by the National Law Journal to the "Appellate Hot List" for significant appellate wins and an impressive track record overall. The Federal Circuit affirmance of the trial judge's decision to set aside a $1.5 billion verdict in Microsoft v. Alcatel Lucent, which is the largest patent case ever to go to verdict, was named as one of the "Top 10 Litigation Wins of 2008."
  • 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.

Our impressive team of appellate attorneys, who have the highest technical and legal qualifications, includes more than 30 former Federal Circuit clerks.

The underlying core element of our appellate success is the belief that strong brief writing and rigorous oral advocacy win appeals. We do not reserve appellate advocacy to a small subgroup of our litigation team. Many of our powerhouse litigators argue appeals at the Federal Circuit.
