Daily Journal Names Jeff Fisher Among Top IP Lawyers in California

April 22, 2019 Accolades

Farella Braun + Martel is proud to announce that partner Jeffrey M. Fisher was named to the 2019 list of “Top Intellectual Property Lawyers” in California by the Daily Journal.

The Daily Journal noted Fisher’s experience representing smaller innovative companies fighting technology giants in court. The profile featured his role in the 2018 high-profile jury verdict on trade secret and breach of NDA claims, including a finding of willful and malicious misappropriation, in the Northern District of California relating to data center technology. In March this year, the client was awarded enhanced damages and attorneys’ fees in connection with this matter. In June, Jeff is scheduled to go to trial in the Eastern District of Texas to defend startup CNEX Labs, Inc. against allegations of trade secret misappropriation, breach of contract, CFAA, and RICO claims by Chinese smartphone maker behemoth Huawei Technologies.

Jeff Fisher is an accomplished trial lawyer with experience in federal and state courts and at both the trial and appellate levels. His practice involves a variety of high-stakes intellectual property and technology disputes, including patent, trade secret, copyright, and trademark infringement, as well as antitrust and unfair competition cases. He has specific experience litigating cases involving semiconductor and chip packaging technologies; computer hardware, software, and networking technologies; DNA, life sciences, medical devices and biopharmaceutical technologies; solar technology; internet and encryption technologies; digital data compression technology; and data centers. Jeff serves as co-chair of Farella’s Litigation Department.
