Fish & Richardson Principal Juanita R. Brooks Named "2013 Intellectual Property MVP
San Diego, CA, November 25, 2013 - Fish & Richardson announced today that Juanita R. Brooks, a principal in the firm's IP Litigation Group, was named a "2013 Intellectual Property MVP" by Law360. Brooks was one of only 10 attorneys selected for the "IP MVP" award, which honors the top players in the legal industry for their exceptional work.
With a nationwide trial practice, Brooks has been first chair on over 140 career trials, and manages an average caseload of nearly 30 active patent infringement cases annually. In the past year, Brooks went to trial as lead counsel two times in federal courts across the U.S., handled three high stakes appeals before the Federal Circuit, and successfully settled a sixth matter one month before trial. This is a blistering pace in the field of patent litigation, where there are only about 75 trials in the U.S. each year and the complexity of the cases means that discovery can take years.
According to Law360, "in one of the year’s most talked about cases," Brooks "secured (a) ruling that wiped out a $23.5 million infringement judgment against Fresenius USA Inc." and set an important precedent that post-grant review such as reexamination can directly impact the outcome of patent litigation.
Noting her "aggressive advocacy," Law360 stated that "also this year, Brooks represented Allergan in two separate cases at the Federal Circuit that maintained patent protection for the company’s glaucoma drugs."
