FisherBroyles LLP, the nation’s first and world’s largest cloud-based distributed law firm partnership announced today that it has added four new partners to its patent prosecution group.  The addition of Mia Fiedler, Steven Underwood, John Bacoch, and Michael Kochka add to what is becoming one of the preeminent Intellectual Property groups in the nation with close to fifty patent prosecutors, twelve trademark prosecutors, and several Intellectual Property litigators and transaction attorneys.

New partner, Mia Fiedler said about FisherBroyles “The firm does away with a lot of the hierarchies and bureaucratic processes that plague some of the larger law firms.  This enables the attorneys to focus more time and energy on the specific needs of the clients.”

All four of the new partners come to FisherBroyles with national law firm experience and very strong technical backgrounds.  Steven Underwood joined the firm’s New York office and concentrates his practice on drafting and prosecuting patent applications in the electrical, software, and mechanical arts, as well as a variety of other IP related matters.  Mia Fiedler joined the firm’s Atlanta office with experience in patent prosecution in both electrical hardware and software.  John Bacoch is in the firm’s Salt Lake City office and he concentrates his practice on patent prosecution in high tech technologies, including software and electrical hardware technologies.  Michael Kochka joins the firm’s Princeton office and he also concentrates on patent prosecution in a broad range of technologies, including software, wireless communication devices, electrical devices, and other high-tech areas.

“It is becoming clear that our Law Firm 2.0® platform provides attorneys a unique opportunity to concentrate on their clients’ needs without worrying about the traditional inefficiencies of law practice,” said FisherBroyles Intellectual Property Managing Partner T.J. DoVale. “Fortune 100 clients are now realizing that the FisherBroyles model aligns the interest of the attorneys with those of the client, as well as the interests of the firm.  It’s a win-win-win.”

“I’m excited to join the FisherBroyles patent prosecution group,” said new partner Steven Underwood. “The qualifications, experience, and depth of the group are second to none, and the reduced overhead of the firm allows us to provide top-quality patent services at more than competitive rates.”

“FisherBroyles is a national full-service law firm that provides me with a cutting-edge platform to deliver a deep bench of legal capabilities to clients in an efficient manner.  I am thrilled to be joining its world-class intellectual property group of over 60 experienced and talented attorneys,” said new FisherBroyles partner Michael Kochka.

New FisherBroyles partner John Bacoch added, “FisherBroyles provides an opportunity to escape the constraints, excessive overhead, and rigid structure of a traditional law firm and allows me to focus on my client’s needs in a timely, efficient, and personal manner.”
