Juanita Brooks Named to Daily Journal "Top 100 Attorneys"

Fish & Richardson principal Juanita Brooks, based in our Southern California office, has been named one of California's Top 100 Attorneys by the Daily Journal, a statewide legal industry publication.

Every year the publication’s editors look at the work of hundreds of California Lawyers who are nominated by their peers, their employers and even their clients. According to the Daily Journal, "The point is to honor the attorneys whose work is having the widest impact.... We seek to honor work that is changing an industry or the law or the society as a whole."

Juanita has received the Top 100 honor multiple times.

This year, Juanita's major win in July 2013 for Fresenius Medical Care Holdings Inc. was profiled by the Daily Journal. In that case, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ruled that federal trial and appellate courts are required by statute to dismiss pending patent cases if the USPTO has canceled the asserted claims through reexamination.

Congratulations, Juanita!
