Joshua Griswold

Josh Griswold is a Principal in the Dallas office of Fish & Richardson P.C. His practice includes all aspects of intellectual property law, with particular emphasis on contested intellectual property matters before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and in the Federal courts. He provides strategic counseling to clients, bringing a unique and well-rounded perspective of a skilled practitioner with deep experience both in procurement and in enforcement and defense.

As a core member of the Firm’s Patent Post-Grant Practice Group, Mr. Griswold has represented clients in numerous reexamination and post-grant review proceedings. He has also leveraged his technology savvy in the infringement and validity aspects of disputes in Federal courts across the country.

Mr. Griswold serves clients in developing worldwide patent portfolios with an eye toward crafting portfolios that effectively exclude competitors and can be monetized through licensing and enforcement. He brings a unique, litigation informed perspective to his patent procurement strategies. His practice spans the lifecycle of intellectual property, from helping clients understand and navigate the intellectual property landscape as they bring new products to market to helping clients prune portfolios to divest low value assets. When companies and intellectual property change hands, he brings extensive experience in technology assignment and license agreements.

Although Mr. Griswold represents some large companies, he also enjoys working with mid-market and start-up companies. He has developed a program that helps burgeoning technology businesses integrate internal systems and workflows that capture and allow the business to intelligently protect their developing intellectual property and better position for investment and acquisition.

Mr. Griswold is core to the team that designs and presents the Firm’s internal patent training programs on patent procurement, due diligence, licensing and intellectual property agreements, and intellectual property disputes.
