Background

Joe Herriges is a Principal in the Twin Cities Office of Fish & Richardson, where he focuses on high-stakes patent litigation in a variety of technology areas, including automotive technology, pharmaceuticals, polymers, and retroreflective optics.

Joe has extensive stand-up experience in district court, including examining and cross-examining witnesses at trial, arguing for and securing preliminary injunctive relief, and successfully arguing at Markman and summary judgment on behalf of numerous clients.  In addition to his district court experience, Joe leads teams in briefing before the Federal Circuit and has successfully presented arguments in that Court, including in a recent competitor case involving automotive technology where he argued for and secured affirmance of a complete invalidity ruling.  Finally, Joe’s practice includes representing clients before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, where he has led efforts from the petition stage through successful argument at Oral Hearing.

Prior to joining the firm, Joe served as a law clerk to Judge Michael J. Melloy on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. At the University of Minnesota, he was a sprinter on the Big Ten Champion Minnesota swim team and was named Academic All Big Ten.
