About Kate

Katherine Reardon is a principal in the litigation group in the New York* office of Fish & Richardson P.C. Her practice focuses on complex patent litigation in district courts around the country, particularly in the Eastern and Western Districts of Texas, the District of Delaware, and the International Trade Commission. Her background in Engineering and Management—i.e., industrial engineering—allows her practice to span a diverse range of subject matters, including high-tech consumer electronics, mobile devices, and wearables, as well as financial systems, battery materials, and medical devices. She has experience in all aspects of litigation and excels at case management. Kate has successfully argued discovery and pre-trial motions, second-chaired witness examinations in both bench and jury trials, and has served as the lead associate on unique ITC proceedings, including a 100-day program case and a full Commission hearing on the public interest. Her practice also encompasses intellectual property due diligence matters, including portfolio management with a focus on potential assertion.

In her years at Fish, Kate has worked with numerous Fortune 100 companies and international clients in Korea, China, and Europe. She prides herself on working closely with her clients to understand their business needs so that the team can develop effective strategies and a practical playbook in litigation.
