Why Fish? 

We are experts in law and technology

Because patent law sits at the intersection of law and technology, technical expertise and legal acumen are both essential attributes for patent attorneys. With more than 400 attorneys, agents, and technology specialists on staff—many of whom spent years in the field before joining Fish—we have assembled a team whose formidable industry experience you won’t find elsewhere.

We integrate prosecution with litigation

Fish is the top-ranked patent litigation firm in the United States, handling twice as many patent cases as our nearest competitor, and we are well-known for winning the largest cases, often with billions of dollars and entire businesses on the line. We have the unique ability to infuse the lessons learned by our court-tested litigators into every patent application we handle. Our patent prosecutors approach every case by taking into account the possibility of future litigation, giving your patent increased strength and durability to fend off challenges.

We modernize the practice of law

You don’t often hear the terms “law firm” and “cutting edge” together, but at Fish, we use homegrown innovative tools and processes every day in our practice. Many of Fish’s efforts to streamline and modernize the practice of law have been recognized in local and national media as innovative solutions that improve client service and reduce costs.

We keep you informed

Lack of communication is the most common complaint against law firms. At Fish, we know that our clients frequently have questions about their matters, and we believe that the best way to build attorney-client trust is to maintain clear and open lines of communication. We work with all of our clients early in the relationship to establish a regular schedule of briefings, and it is our policy to respond promptly to phone calls and emails. As part of implementing our communications philosophy, we developed FISHLink™, an online tool that gives you convenient, anytime access to the same matter information, documents, and updates that our attorneys have, ensuring that our whole team is on the same page and working together.

We offer flexibility in pricing

We treat your money as if it were our own, and offer alternative pricing models that differ from the traditional billable hour, including budget per matter, fixed fees, blended rates, and monthly retainer. We partner with our clients at the outset of the relationship to understand their business objectives and identify the best alternative fee model for their matters, ensuring that we can protect and maximize the value of their intellectual property.

Our Global Reach

United States

With 11 offices in the US (Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Dallas, Delaware, Houston, New York, Silicon Valley, Southern California, the Twin Cities, and Washington, DC), we are able to efficiently serve our clients wherever they are located, including in some of the most dynamic and exciting innovation centers in the world.

Europe

Fish’s Munich office provides our clients with the ability to pursue European and US intellectual property protection efficiently and consistently by utilizing one firm and a single, streamlined process. Our office in Munich is staffed by European-qualified patent counsel and provides a direct avenue for clients to communicate with our attorneys about European patent law and to receive the same high-quality work product that our clients expect from our US attorneys.

China

Fish’s Shenzhen office provides a base of operations to assist our Chinese clients in obtaining, defending, and enforcing intellectual property rights in the US and Europe. Fish attorneys help Chinese companies in the telecommunications, electronics, financial technology, life sciences, and medical device industries obtain patent and trademark protection in the US and Europe and represent Chinese companies in federal district and appeals courts, at the International Trade Commission, and before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB).

Companies that Value Their IP Choose Fish to Protect It

With 140 years of experience representing the world’s most influential thinkers, makers, and doers, there are very few legal or technical issues that we have not handled. From our deep technical expertise to our innovative approach to the practice of law, it’s easy to see why so many companies trust Fish to safeguard their intellectual assets. Contact us at any of our offices to begin transforming your creative ingenuity into business results.
