Fish & Richardson Named Litigation Powerhouse by Law360

Fish & Richardson announced that the firm has been selected as a Litigation Powerhouse by Law360 in its inaugural ranking of the top firms in the U.S. for litigation. Fish is among just 50 law firms nationally that were singled out for their ability "to score remarkable wins for their clients over the past year."

Firms named as Litigation Powerhouses were chosen based on the size of the litigation teams; the nature of the litigation victories those teams were able to score for clients at trial, on appeal, or in pretrial dismissals over the past year; and new matters clients have tapped the firm to handle in recent months. Selected firms "consistently leveraged a deep bench into outstanding wins."

"It's an honor to be recognized as one of the top litigation firms in the country," said Kurt Glitzenstein, Practice Group Leader of Fish's Litigation Group. "Fish has a rich history of making complex issues understandable, spanning a myriad of technologies and disputes, from our highly regarded patent litigation practice to our exceptional trade secrets and product liability practices. Our clients choose Fish because of our extensive courtroom expertise and deep command of complex technology, coupled with our business-focused approach to developing creative and cost-effective strategies for winning the most technically complex and challenging cases."

Law360 noted that the most important qualities that have enabled the top Litigation Powerhouses to dominate the courtroom in bet-the-company cases include: fostering a positive firm culture, developing a strong track record, being creative, and using their appellate practice.

Law360 surveyed law firms on their litigator headcounts, as well as litigation victories and new legal work they secured between March 1, 2015 and March 1, 2016. Firms are ranked based on three factors: the total number of litigators and litigation partners; notable wins in litigation between March 1, 2015 and March 1, 2016; and significant new cases the firm was hired to work on over the same time period. For the purposes of this survey, "litigation" includes domestic and international litigation, as well as litigation in special venues such as administrative courts, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, the Court of Federal Claims, the International Trade Commission, domestic and international arbitration, and bankruptcy litigation.
