BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Feb 22, 2012) - Fish & Richardson has received "Tier 1" IP rankings in every national U.S. 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 second year in a row that Fish has swept the Tier 1 national U.S. rankings. MIP also ranks firms regionally in Patent Prosecution and Patent Litigation, and Fish received five Tier 1 rankings and two Tier 2 rankings in the regional surveys. The rankings were published in MIP's February 2012 issue.

MIP's survey is based on extensive research and interviews with both law firms and clients worldwide in 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 2011 and January 2012. This is the 16th year that MIP has published its annual international IP survey.
