About Daniel

Daniel Taylor is an associate in the Delaware* office of Fish & Richardson P.C., where he focuses on intellectual property litigation. He comes to the firm after several years as a law clerk in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware. In his time with the court, Daniel worked on numerous patent infringement cases as well as other civil litigation, including: contract disputes, corporate matters and securities cases. His experience with the court included a wide range of motions practice ranging from discovery disputes and motions to dismiss to summary judgment and post-trial briefing. On the patent side, Daniel has extensive experience assisting judges to prepare for Markman hearings and to develop the ensuing claim constructions. He began at the court as a judicial law clerk, serving the Honorable Sue L. Robinson in her last year on the bench. Thereafter, Daniel worked as a court law clerk assigned to the court’s magistrate and visiting judges, including the Honorable Mary Pat Thynge, the Honorable Christopher J.

Prior to his time in Delaware, Daniel prosecuted electrical and computer patent applications for a Boston law firm.

In law school, Daniel provided local inventors and business owners with patent and trademark assistance through the school’s IP clinic. He also served a range of general practice clients in Maine state courts through the Cumberland Legal Aid Clinic. Also as a law student, Daniel was a judicial extern to the Honorable Kermit V. Lipez of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit.
