Background

Claire Krebs, P.E., is a litigation associate in the Austin office of Fish & Richardson. She has experience in multiple stages of litigation, and her practice focuses primarily on patent litigation, but also includes trade secrets litigation. She has experience representing technology companies in the federal courts in the Central District of California, Eastern District of Texas, and Western District of Texas, and is admitted to practice in the Fifth Circuit. Internally to Fish, she serves as the Austin office’s representative on Fish’s Litigation Associates Advisory Committee, which serves as a collaborative, communication, and feedback liaison between the litigation associates and the leadership of the litigation practice group.

Prior to joining Fish, she earned her professional engineering license in Texas and worked as an environmental engineer at GSI Environmental. There she focused on soil and groundwater treatment and technologies for clients in the public and private sectors (e.g., DoD, petrochemical industries, local clients), supporting their regulatory compliance and research programs. Prior to that she served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Honduras, where she taught engineering and designed potable water systems. She also has a background in mechanical engineering and computational and applied mathematics.

Claire was previously a summer associate at Fish, where she worked on matters involving oil & gas and electronics patents. She partners with the University of Texas School of Law’s Mithoff Pro Bono Program as a supervising attorney for student-led pro bono projects, including those that provide mental health related legal services to underserved populations. She also is the lead point of contact and lead Fish attorney partnering with Texas Rio Grande Legal Aid’s Austin office and Sierra Club on Texas environmental pro bono permitting challenges that are currently being fought in the Fifth and D.C.
