Background

Ryan Petty is a litigation law clerk in the Twin Cities office of Fish & Richardson. Ryan was previously a summer associate at Fish.

In law school, Dr. Petty was an active member of the Harvard Journal of Law and Technology. As a member of the JOLT’s inaugural Federal Circuit Comments, Dr. Petty wrote on various issues decided by the Federal Circuit, including on double patenting and standing. Dr. Petty was a research assistant to Professors Ruth Okediji and William “Terry” Fisher, focusing on the topics of international IP law, traditional knowledge, and global access to medicine. He also served as a teaching fellow for Harvard’s CopyrightX, teaching U.S. copyright law to students from across the globe. While in Harvard’s Emmett Environmental Law and Policy Clinic, Dr. Petty authored an amicus brief on behalf of Health Professional Organizations submitted in the 9th Circuit opposing an action by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The case resulted in an en banc ruling ordering EPA to comply with the petitioners’ request.

Dr. Petty earned his Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2009. His doctoral work focused on biochemical interactions of small RNA viruses with host cells.
