Jacqueline Tio Named to Atlanta Business Chronicle's 2021 40 Under 40 List

The Atlanta Business Chronicle recently named Fish & Richardson Principal Jacqueline Tio to its 2021 "40 Under 40" list, which recognizes the region's top young professionals across all industries.

Tio's advocacy at Fish emphasizes not only intellectual property litigation matters, but also long-term diversity initiatives, including the advancement of women and minorities at all levels. Her varied experience includes patent and trade secret litigation in venues across the country, covering a wide range of technologies and consumer products. She has also participated in multiple jury and bench trials over the past decade and litigated in an impressive range of venues, including in federal district courts, before the International Trade Commission, and before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. Most recently, despite pandemic-related trial disruptions, she successfully commenced inter partes review of a patent in 2020, represented a large client in a high-stakes ITC litigation in 2020-2021, and is continuing to represent innovative clients engaged in multi-patent disputes.

In addition to her litigation practice, Tio devotes significant time to pro bono and community causes. She serves as the treasurer of the Georgia Asian Pacific American Bar Association and as co-chair of the Membership and Diversity Committee of the Atlanta chapter of ChIPs, a nonprofit focused on connecting women in technology, law, and policy. In her pro bono practice, Tio has worked with multiple clients through the Georgia Justice Project, Georgia Lawyers for the Arts, the Atlanta Volunteers Lawyers Foundation, and Kids In Need of Defense (KIND).

Tio and her fellow 40 Under 40 honorees will be recognized at an awards ceremony in Atlanta on November 4. To learn more, click here.
