Intellectual property firm Fish & Richardson laid off 30 staff members across eight U.S. offices and joined a growing list of firms cutting staff in lieu of lawyers as economic conditions deteriorate. In a statement, Fish cited the economic climate as the reason for the cuts. The roughly 500-lawyer firm, which is also known for litigation and corporate matters, opened its 11th U.S. office in Houston in October.
