Annie King, Ph.D., is a principal in the Boston office of Fish & Richardson P.C. Dr. King’s practice focus is on patent prosecution. Prior to joining Fish, Dr. King was an associate patent counsel at Infinity Pharmaceuticals, as well as a patent agent and technology specialist at a law firm in Boston. Dr. King’s technical areas of expertise include organic, inorganic, and organometallic chemistry, pharmaceutical formulations, polymer, and industrial chemical processes. During her doctoral study, Dr. King gained extensive experience in the synthesis and characterization of organometallic complexes useful in olefin metathesis. She characterized compounds using NMR, mass spectrometry, and X-ray crystallography.
