Peter Devlin Quoted in Law360 Article, "IP Boutiques Tick Down As AIA Settles In"

Peter Devlin,President and Chief Executive Officer, was quoted inLaw360′s article “IP Boutiques Tick Down As AIA Settles In” on April 15, 2018.

Fish & Richardson PCretained its title as the nation's largest IP boutique with 379 attorneys at year's end. This was almost identical to its 2016 number, although the firm reported a 6 percent decrease in the number of partners, which dipped to 165.

Peter Devlin, said “the change in partners was primarily the result of the departure of a group of attorneys in Fish's commercial litigation practice in Dallas who went toWinston & Strawn LLP.”

"The attorneys who left were part of the firm's expansion beyond IP and high-tech litigation into general commercial work," Devlin said. "Those departures had no impact on Fish's core IP practices, where we had an outstanding year both in terms of volume of work and winning results."
