Fish & Richardson Named 2019 Best USA IP Firm in Patent Litigation by the International Legal Alliance Summit

Fish & Richardson has been named the 2019 Best USA IP Firm in Patent Litigation by the International Legal Alliance Summit (ILAS). Fish earned its top Gold Award for its track record over the long term (five to 10 years), performance over the last three years, capacity for innovation, strategic initiatives, and engagement in the IP world. Fish was the only law firm to be recognized in the patent litigation category - no awards were given in the Silver or Honorable Mention categories.

Year in and out, Fish is the most successful patent litigation firm across every venue - garnering high-profile IP wins in district court, at the International Trade Commission, at the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. No firm in the world can match Fish's winning track record in intellectual property trials. Fish's trial lawyers are in court nearly every day. They know how to present the facts and the law in ways that are clear and compelling to judges and to juries, which is why Fish outperforms other firms in high-stakes patent infringement actions.

In April 2019, Managing Intellectual Property named Fish the 2019 U.S. Firm of the Year in the ITC and Specialty IP categories, and the regional Patent Prosecution (Northeast) Firm of the Year. Fish was also named the number one firm in the country for IP litigation in Corporate Counsel's "Best of 2019" survey of the top providers to the in-house corporate legal marketplace and to the "Best of 2019 Hall of Fame" list for placing among the top three firms in this category for three out of the last four years.
