BOSTON � Fish & Richardson named Katherine “Kathi” Lutton head of the firm’s national litigation practice. Lutton takes the helm from Fish & Richardson principal David M. Barkan, who has led the litigation practice for the past six years. Both attorneys practice in the firm’s Silicon Valley office in Redwood City, Calif. Fish & Richardson president Peter J. Devlin cited Lutton’s litigation skills, her electrical engineering degrees and business-world experience as a design engineer for General Electric Co. “This powerful combination of skills will help enable Fish & Richardson to continue providing our clients with the balance of technical knowledge and legal expertise at the heart of our client-focused service philosophy,” Devlin said. More than 230 attorneys at the 420-lawyer firm are part of the litigation practice. Lutton’s role will include creating and rolling out business and marketing strategies for the practice. Although known primarily for its intellectual property and patent litigation work, Lutton will also help expand Fish & Richardson’s litigation work in commercial and corporate defense and International Trade Commission (ITC) matters. “[I] look forward to working closely with my colleagues to maintain our commanding position in tackling some of the toughest issues facing the patent world, including, among others, patent reform,” Lutton said. Lutton earned her J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School, her master’s in electrical engineering from Syracuse University and her bachelor’s of science in electrical engineering from the State University of New York at Binghamton.
