BOSTON, Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Fish & Richardson has received "Tier 1" IP rankings in every national category – Patent Prosecution, Patent Litigation, Life Sciences, and ITC – in Managing Intellectual Property (MIP) magazine's annual ranking of the top IP law firms in the U.S.  This is the third year in a row that Fish has swept the Tier 1 national U.S. rankings.  The rankings were published in MIP's February 2013 issue.

MIP's survey is based on extensive research and interviews with both law firms and clients worldwide in more than 80 jurisdictions.  Based on this research, firms are ranked in tiers in each category in each jurisdiction.  The tiers reflect the perception of the leading firms in each market with the top tier listing those firms regarded as having the strongest practices in each category.  The research was conducted between September 2012 and January 2013. 

"We are honored to sweep the Tier 1 IP rankings in every national category for the third year in a row," said Peter J. Devlin, President of Fish & Richardson.  "This recognition confirms that when it comes to intellectual property, Fish has a proven record of delivering value, efficiency, and winning results."
