Fish & Richardson Named No. 1 Patent Litigation Defense Firm for Past Five Years; Ranks Among Top Firms Representing Trademark Defendants

Fish & Richardson has been named the No. 1 firm representing defendants in patent litigation in the U.S. over the past five years by Lex Machina in its inaugural Top Law Firm Report for Select Federal Litigation 2018. The report showed that Fish represented defendants in a whopping 919 patent cases between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2017. Fish also ranked among the top firms representing trademark defendants, handling 58 trademark cases during the past five years.

Fish was recently ranked the No. 1 patent litigation defense firm in the U.S. in Lex Machina's Patent Litigation 2017 Year in Review. Fish defended clients in 172 patent cases in 2017 - over 100 cases more than its nearest competitor.

"It's not just the number of cases in which we're hired, but the number of cases that we try. Clients are understandably very interested when they are making counsel decisions in identifying firms that have a real, demonstrated track record of experience in the courts. We simply know how to win, and we dominate in every major venue. That matters a lot to clients," said Kurt Glitzenstein, Litigation Practice Group Leader at Fish.

Lex Machina's data for the Top Law Firm Report for Select Federal Litigation 2018 is focused on the U.S. District Courts and does not include appeals or modifications of judgments on appeal.
