Crystal Culhane Named San Diego Business Journal Leader in Law

San Diego Business Journal recently announced that Fish & Richardson Associate Crystal Culhane has been named a 2021 "Leader in Law." The awards "honor San Diego's top lawyers and in-house general counsel attorneys," based on both professional accomplishments and community achievement. Culhane, who was recognized in the "Rising Star" category, is one of just 20 recipients of the 2021 award.

According to SDBJ, "With a focus on protecting innovations in chemistry and related fields, Culhane has become one of the most sought-after patent attorneys in the region by pharmaceutical, chemistry, biotechnology and nanotechnology clients... It's challenging, high-stakes work, but Culhane excels at helping companies of all sizes and academic institutions find practical solutions to complex patent issues."

This isn't the first recognition Culhane has received from SDBJ. Earlier this year, the publication named her a "Woman of Influence in Law." She has also been named one of "San Diego's Top Attorneys" by SD Metro Magazine, one of "San Diego's Top 40 Under 40" by The Daily Transcript, and "One to Watch" by Best Lawyers in America.
