Fish & Richardson Named Law360 2020 IP Practice Group of the Year

November 30, 2020

Fish & Richardson has been named a 2020 IP Practice Group of the Year by Law360 for its high-profile wins in federal courts across the United States, at the Federal Circuit, at the International Trade Commission (ITC), and before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). Fish was one of only six firms nationwide singled out by Law360 for this prestigious award. This is the seventh time the firm has received this honor.

Fish was selected for its exceptional track record over the past year. Major victories include obtaining a precedential Federal Circuit decision denying Idenix Pharmaceutical’s bid to reinstate a $2.5 billion verdict against client Gilead Sciences, negotiating a $175 million settlement for Power Integrations after 15 years of litigation with Fairchild Semiconductor and ON Semiconductor, and winning a $43.3 million jury verdict (with pre- and post-judgment interest) for Swiss clients Wasica Finance GmbH and BlueArc Finance AG in their long-running patent battle against Schrader International Inc. and companies.

At the ITC, Fish won a rare trade secret case for Guangzhou Rebenet Catering Equipment Manufacturing Co., Ltd., Guangzhou Liangsheng Trading Co., Ltd., and Aceplus International Limited terminating an ITC investigation brought against them. Fish also won a patent infringement case for Shanghai, China-based JinkoSolar that will allow the company’s continued U.S. expansion in the multibillion-dollar solar module market, and an important case for Bose Corporation against 14 counterfeiters which stopped approximately $30 million of copycat headphones from being imported and sold in the U.S.

“Before COVID-19, our trial lawyers were in court leading trials every three weeks. Now, our lawyers are busy doing remote depositions and Markman hearings, remote Federal Circuit appeals, and remote trials,” said Kurt Glitzenstein, Litigation Practice Group Leader at Fish. “While so much has changed this year, the one constant is our winning track record in intellectual property trials. Our litigators have nimbly adapted to this new virtual reality and we continue to outperform other firms in high-stakes patent infringement actions.”
