Vivian Cheng Named 2022 "Rising Star" by Managing Intellectual Property

Managing Intellectual Property (MIP) magazine recently recognized Fish & Richardson Principal Vivian Cheng as one of its 2022 "Rising Stars." According to MIP, the "Rising Stars" award recognizes some of the best up-and-coming intellectual property practitioners in private practice who have contributed to the success of their firms and clients.

Cheng is based in Fish's New York office, where she focuses her practice on trademark, trade dress, unfair competition, and copyright litigation. Her experience also includes representing trademark owners in opposition and cancellation proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) and counseling clients on all aspects of the enforcement and protection of copyrights and trademarks, such as clearance and registration, pre-suit investigations, fair use, online brand protection, license agreements, and litigation strategy. In recent years, she has played a key role in litigation surrounding the "Fearless Girl" statue, which was famously unveiled in New York City in 2017, as well as trademark litigation on behalf of travel meta search engine Kayak.

MIP's independent research is based on a weighted system of peer and client feedback, combined with a review of information obtained from surveys conducted with law firms and their clients. Inclusion is based solely on merit.
