Prince Lobel is excited to welcome Patrick Fitch to the firm as a partner in the Intellectual Property Practice Group.
Patrick notes, “I am thrilled to join forces with Bob Gilman, Matt Vella, and the entire Prince Lobel IP litigation team. The firm has established an enviable track record enforcing clients’ intellectual property rights that stands out both here in Boston and among our relatively small national community of IP litigation practitioners. Between the IP group’s significant focus on representing IP rights holders and the firm’s business savvy and creativity with alternative fee arrangements, I could not imagine a more natural fit for my practice. And I’m excited to do what I can to help the team continually elevate the results we deliver for our clients and our focus on client service.”
Patrick helps inventors and innovative companies build, protect, and monetize their intellectual property portfolios. He represents clients in commercial, patent, and trade secret litigation in U.S. state and federal courts, as well as before the U.S. International Trade Commission and the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office’s Patent Trial and Appeal Board. Patrick’s experience includes significant work with consumer electronics and technology companies, but he has litigated cases involving technologies as diverse as chemical compounds, semiconductor design, ecommerce, and black powder rifles. Along with his domestic litigation work, Patrick also coordinates global strategies for cross-border litigation and IP licensing campaigns and advises clients in the purchase and sale of IP assets.
While Patrick’s experience is highlighted by significant wins as outside counsel, his clients also benefit from his experience as in-house counsel for both one of the world’s largest patent holders and for a publicly traded smart device company establishing North American operations. Patrick developed a unique understanding of the day-to-day challenges faced by his clients, and—as a result—client service is a centerpiece of Patrick’s practice.
Managing Partner Craig Tateronis notes that “Patrick is a highly skilled patent litigator who attains exceptional outcomes for his intellectual property clients. He creates value for his clients by helping to develop and then monetize their intellectual property assets. His practice complements the business model developed by Prince Lobel’s Intellectual Property team. We look forward to adding Patrick and a variety of exciting new clients to our IP practice.”
Patrick holds a J.D. from the American University, Washington College of Law and earned his B.A. in history at The Johns Hopkins University.
