Washington, D.C., November 1, 2011 - Indranil "Indy" Mukerji, a 37-year-old principal at Fish & Richardson, has Indranil been selected as a 2011 "Minority 40 Under 40" honoree by the National Law Journal. The award recognizes 40 minority lawyers across the United States "who have wielded national influence in their practice areas and beyond during the past five years."

At Fish, Mr. Mukerji focuses on litigating patent cases in federal courts around the country in a wide variety of technologies, including computer software and hardware.

"This is a great honor for Indy and we are very proud that he was singled out for this important recognition by the National Law Journal," said Peter J. Devlin, president of Fish & Richardson. "He is an accomplished patent litigator who is handling cutting-edge cases that are shaping the future of intellectual property law."

Mr. Mukerji received his J.D. from Boston University School of Law in 1999, and both his M.E. (1996) and B.S. (1995) in biological engineering from Cornell University.
