Fish & Richardson Wins $23.7 Million Jury Verdict for R&D Institute

Jury Finds All of Company's Patent Claims Valid

WILMINGTON, DE--(Marketwired - May 16, 2016) - Fish & Richardson today announced that it has won a $23.7 million jury verdict for client SRI International in its patent-infringement lawsuit against Cisco Systems, Inc. in Delaware federal court. The jury found all of SRI's patent claims valid.

SRI, an independent, not-for-profit research institute, conducts client supported research and development for government agencies, commercial businesses, foundations, and other organizations. The two U.S. patents in the suit cover technology for monitoring computer networks and identifying intruders and suspicious activity.

Fish also represented SRI in successfully enforcing these same patents in an earlier lawsuit in September 2008; a verdict that was later upheld at the Federal Circuit.

Fish principals Frank Scherkenbach and Howard Pollack were lead counsel for SRI. Principals David Hoffman and Frank Albert were also key members of the trial team. 

Fish & Richardson is a global patent, intellectual property (IP) litigation, and commercial litigation law firm with more than 400 attorneys and technology specialists across the U.S. and Europe. Fish has been named the #1 patent litigation firm in the U.S. for 12 consecutive years and is one of the busiest post-grant firms, representing more petitioners at the PTAB than any other firm. Fish has been winning cases worth billions in controversy -- often by making new law -- for the most innovative clients and influential industry leaders since 1878. For more information, visit
