IAM reports that Fish "is a formidable competitor" and "obviously one of the top patent litigation firms - it puts together great trial teams of smart people who play to win. It is aggressive and built for success at trial." The firm also has "a deep well of patent expertise" and is a "prosecution powerhouse." IAM goes on to note that, "Fish has cultivated one of the busiest, most successful post-issuance practices in the country. Its dedicated team does a marvelous job capitalizing on the firm's prosecution and litigation skill sets to frame arguments that Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) judges find irresistible. A particularly robust appellate practice also puts it at a distinct advantage over others."

In addition, 31 Fish attorneys were selected for inclusion as "leading patent professionals." The attorneys selected include: Gwilym Attwell, James Babineau, Edmond Bannon, Samuel Borodach, Dr. Jack Brennan, Juanita Brooks, Christian Chu, Joseph Colaianni, Susan Coletti, Ruffin Cordell, John Dragseth, Dr. Janis Fraser, Timothy French, J.
