Fish & Richardson has unveiled a new venture and technology group focused on providing young companies with the guidance and strategy needed to build a foundation for success. The group consists of experienced, business- and technology-savvy attorneys who are uniquely qualified to address the legal needs young companies face as they grow to be established enterprises.
Fish & Richardson is known as the nation's premier intellectual property law firm. F&R also has a growing corporate practice that provides services throughout the United States. Attorneys working together in the V&T group deliver the background and guidance leaders of young companies need to make informed decisions and take enduring steps.
"Because the V&T group works closely with F&R's patent lawyers and technology specialists, we get unique insights into a client's industry and can best position a company for growth," says Eddie Wang Rodriguez, principal and practice group leader of the corporate and securities group.
Many young companies neglect their most important asset -- their intellectual property. Fish & Richardson engages in early strategic patent portfolio planning, strategy and implementation. By carefully protecting its IP, a company is better positioned to seek early-stage financing, secure market exclusivity and capture competitive advantage.
Because of Fish & Richardson's extensive connections within the venture capital communities, clients have access to many financing sources. The firm also helps with licensing, public offerings, mergers, strategic collaborations and joint ventures, and provides tax, employment and executive compensation advice.
F&R understands that new businesses require special attention and creative fee arrangements and the firm's V&T group often offers flexible rates. One unique option -- the Acceleredge program -- offers critical services at a flat rate designed to help young companies get to market more quickly and build their competitive edge.
Fish & Richardson's attorneys don't think of themselves as just legal counsel. They take pride in partnering with their clients. The firm has a long and proud history of working with path-breaking pioneers, inventors and business leaders. F&R's venture and technology group enjoys working with today's innovators and entrepreneurs and helping them achieve their goals of being tomorrow's leaders. Each Fish & Richardson attorney fosters long-term relationships with clients, for the life of each company, as existing goals are achieved and new ones are created.
