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.
Kete has experience in multimillion-dollar global IP disputes in district court and at the International Trade Commission. 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.
"We are always looking for strong litigation talent to add to our deep intellectual property bench," said Kurt Glitzenstein, Litigation Practice Group Leader at Fish. "Fish is well-known for our investment in our next generation of IP trial lawyers, and we are excited to have Joy join our team."
Kete received her J.D., summa cum laude, from Suffolk University Law School in 2015, where she was the lead articles editor for the Suffolk University Law Review. She received her B.A. from Vassar College in 2012. She served as a judicial intern for the Honorable Magistrate Judge Judith Dein in the U.S. District Court, District of Massachusetts in 2013.
