There is an enormous variety of career choices when it comes to the legal world. Corporate lawyers seek legal recruitment with top-tier companies, tax attorneys look for high-level financial clients and criminal experts defend and prosecute those who break the law. However, patent prosecution and litigation practices remain one of the most popular aspects of the legal field, because someone will always be needed to determine copyright and other patent law.
Major patent firms are being lauded for their work ethic. Recently, Boston-based firm Fish & Richardson was ranked nationally, according to the Legal 500 guide of the most prominent United States law firms. Marketwatch reported the specific deparments that were recognized included Fish's Patent Litigation/International Trade Commission (ITC) section and Copyright Law agency.
"[Fish & Richardson] is a leading player in patent prosecution, and has amassed an impressive client base including numerous global leaders in industries such as information technology, pharmaceuticals and financial services," read the Legal 500 report, according to the news source. "[Fish & Richardson] is full-service, undertaking portfolio management for its global clients, opinions and strategic counseling mandates and a busy re-examination practice."
Firms like Fish are needed in high-profile copyright cases. For instance, RTT News reported Apple is seeking an injunction against Samsung due to purported copyright infringement in its new Samsung Galaxy III smartphone. Two teams of lawyers are going to have to collaborate to straighten out this high profile case.
