Fish & Richardson has announced that Joy Backer Kete has joined the firm's Boston office as an associate in its Litigation Group. Kete was a senior associate in the Intellectual Property Litigation Practice at WilmerHale before joining Fish.

Her expertise includes preparing witnesses for depositions and trial; assisting with direct and cross examinations of key witnesses; drafting complaints, dispositive motions, claim construction briefs, pre-trial motions, evidentiary objections, and discovery motions; and coordinating offensive and defensive discovery strategy in multi-jurisdictional matters. She has first- or second-chaired nearly 20 depositions including the depositions of senior executives, inventors, corporate designees, experts, and third-party fact witnesses.
