Fish & Richardson Named Law360 "Intellectual Property Practice Group Of The Year" And "Life Sciences Practice Group Of The Year"

BOSTON, Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Fish & Richardson has been named "Intellectual Property Practice Group of the Year" and "Life Sciences Practice Group of the Year" by Law360 for the size, complexity, and significance of its 2012 litigation wins.  This is a particularly prestigious honor since only five firms – out of hundreds of nominations – are selected in each practice area.

Fish was singled out as "IP Practice Group of the Year" by Law360 for its "landmark victory for Mayo Collaborative Services at the U.S. Supreme Court," and for "cases that established new law on willfulness and declaratory judgment."  Law360 called Fish's Mayo win, "the highest-profile patent ruling of the year."

Law360 also highlighted Fish's "important victory" for W.L. Gore where "the Federal Circuit changed the law on willful infringement and set forth a heightened standard that makes willfulness harder to prove" and its representation of 3M Co. in a Federal Circuit case in which the court established a new precedent on when a licensing letter from a patentee creates declaratory judgment jurisdiction for the recipient. 

Fish was named "Life Sciences Practice Group of the Year" for its impressive wins for Mayo Clinic, W.L. Gore, Cephalon, Inc., Allergan, Inc., and Fresenius Medical Care Holdings, Inc.  For Cephalon, Fish won an important Federal Circuit ruling that clarified parties' respective burdens of proof when a defendant seeks to invalidate a patent.  This issue, seen in almost every Hatch-Waxman pharmaceutical litigation, has now been resolved in branded pharmaceutical's favor.

Fish & Richardson is a global law firm providing strategic counseling and litigation services to innovative clients who seek to protect and maximize the value of their intellectual property (IP). Founded in 1878, Fish's early clients included Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison and the Wright Brothers.  The firm has more than 400 attorneys and technology specialists practicing IP strategy and counseling, IP litigation, and commercial litigation.  Fish is consistently singled out for its superior technical expertise and great results, and has been named the top patent litigation firm in the country for nine consecutive years and the number one IP firm for America's biggest companies.  For more information, visit or follow @fishrichardson on Twitter.
