Fish & Richardson Principal Adam Kessel Named a "Boston Rising Star"
Boston, MA, September 9, 2014 - Fish & Richardson announced today that Adam Kessel, a principal in the firm's Boston office, has been named a "Boston Rising Star" by the National Law Journal (NLJ). The Boston Rising Stars are the region's 40 most promising lawyers under age 40 who have wielded influence in their practice areas, demonstrated strong leadership qualities, developed unique practice niches, showed expertise in litigation or transactional work, and committed themselves to pro bono work.
At Fish, Kessel focuses his practice on intellectual property litigation with a particular emphasis on Internet and software-related matters. He is an expert in patent, copyright, and "open source" licensing issues. He has substantial courtroom and trial experience, including work on many IP cases at trial in the federal courts and the U.S. International Trade Commission. From 2009-2010, he was a "lawyer on loan" to the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office where he handled nearly 200 criminal cases, several of which he took to trial as first chair.
Kessel is among Fish's most active pro bono attorneys, dedicating 200 hours annually to cases involving technology, free speech, and civil liberties. He is a Board Member of the ACLU Massachusetts. Through the ACLU, Kessel recently successfully defended a public school teacher's free speech rights. He has also worked on several groundbreaking pro bono cases for the Electronic Frontier Foundation that have established important legal principles at the intersection of criminal law and computer technology.
Kessel received his J.D. from Northeastern University School of Law in 2004 and his B.A. in chemistry from Princeton University in 1998.
