DALLAS, Nov. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Nautilus Hyosung, the largest provider of ATMs in the United States, has selected the prestigious law firm of Fish & Richardson (Fish) as legal counsel to defend it against the complaints filed by Diebold, Incorporated with the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) and the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.
Fish was recently named the #1 patent litigation firm in the country for the 12th year in a row by Corporate Counsel magazine for handling a total of 201 federal district court patent cases in 2014 – more than twice as many cases as its nearest competitor. Earlier this year, Fish was named the #1 most active law firm at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) for 2014 by Managing Intellectual Property magazine, and the #1 firm at the International Trade Commission with the most cases filed in 2014 according to The National Law Journal.
Nancy Daniels, Nautilus Hyosung America, EVP and COO, commented, "After an extensive search and interview process, Fish & Richardson was the clear choice, based on the firm's experience and track record, to defend Nautilus Hyosung against this meritless Diebold action."
