Annie King, Ph.D., Named IFLR Life Sciences Rising Star

Fish & Richardson Principal Annie King, Ph.D., was recently named one of International Financial Law Review's 2021 "Life Sciences Rising Stars." The annual Rising Stars lists seeks to recognize the emerging leaders in America's law firms and in-house corporate teams. King is one of just 105 lawyers nationwide to receive this distinction.

King is a principal in Fish's Boston office, where she focuses her practice on patent prosecution. Prior to joining Fish, Dr. King was an associate patent counsel at Infinity Pharmaceuticals, as well as a patent agent and technology specialist at a law firm in Boston. King's technical areas of expertise include organic, inorganic, and organometallic chemistry, pharmaceutical formulations, polymers, and industrial chemical processes. King received her Ph.D. in chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and her J.D. from Suffolk University Law School.

This is not the first time King has been recognized as a rising star. Earlier this year, she was named one of Profiles in Diversity Journal's "Women Worth Watching in STEM."
