Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 23 agosto 2019

Fish & Richardson principals Juanita Brooks, Betsy Flanagan and Deanna Reichel have been named to the 2019 list of “Top 250 Women in Litigation” in the U.S. by Benchmark Litigation. Brooks, Flanagan and Reichel were recognized as leading female litigators in their field for their work on “some of the most impactful litigation matters in recent history” and for “earning the hard-won respect of their peers and clients.” This is the second consecutive year that Brooks, Flanagan and Reichel were selected for inclusion.
In 2018, Brooks, Flanagan and Reichel led the all-women Federal Circuit oral argument team that won a unanimous opinion that affirmed Fish’s post-trial reversal of a $200 million jury verdict against client Gilead Sciences, Inc. The team proved that Merck had forfeited its right to assert its hepatitis C drug patents against Gilead because of litigation and business misconduct constituting “unclean hands.” The U.S. Supreme Court denied certiorari in January 2019.In June 2019, Brooks won an important Federal Circuit affirmance of her jury win for client Microsoft against Parallel Networks, a well-known patent assertion entity. Flanagan and Reichel were part of the appellate team that won a critical February 2019 Federal Circuit affirmance for client Mayo Collaborative Services in a patent infringement case brought by Athena Diagnostics over a method for diagnosing a rare autoimmune disorder. Fish got the district court case dismissed, with the judge ruling that the claimed methods of testing relied on a law of nature and thus were not eligible for patenting. The Federal Circuit denied en banc review in July 2019.Brooks, a principal in Fish’s San Diego office, is a nationally recognized trial and appellate lawyer who has handled more than 150 trials in her career. Her stellar record and impressive reputation have made her one of the most sought-after IP trial lawyers in the country. Brooks is an elected member of Fish’s Management Committee. She received her J.D. from Yale Law School in 1977 and her B.A. from San Diego State University in 1974.
