FisherBroyles Unifies Remote Workforce with Anaqua

Law Firm 2.0® selects Anaqua for its intuitive interface

United States, October 9, 2018 Anaqua, Inc., a leading provider of innovation and intellectual property (IP) management solutions, today announced that the first and world’s largest distributed law firm partnership, FisherBroyles, LLP, has selected ANAQUA software to streamline their IP management.

As FisherBroyles is a distributed law firm partnership, its entire organization works remotely, so the ANAQUA platform will also help unify the firm’s dispersed employees, enhance communications, and enable its attorneys to bring the most advanced IP portfolio services to its clients throughout the country more quickly and efficiently.

FisherBroyles had become very unsatisfied with their previous outdated system and its limited capabilities. They chose ANAQUA because it is an advanced, multi-functionality, web-based system that is easy for both clients and attorneys to use and offered a seamless migration for the firm.

“Since we’ve had the system, ANAQUA has saved each of our 80 intellectual property attorneys at least a half hour of work each day,” said T.J. DoVale, Managing Partner of the Intellectual Property Practice Group at FisherBroyles.  “It’s certainly been valuable to have all of our information in one place. The software is so intuitive that we don’t even have to train our people how to use it.  They can go in there, find what they want, and get things done quickly.”

FisherBroyles uses the system to manage patents, trademarks and oppositions. The system helps the law firm keep up with patent and trademark renewals and helps them meet client deadlines and build client reports. It also allows attorneys to enter non-critical data and workflows in a unified system.

“Our advanced software will help the FisherBroyles law firm partnership take its IP management to the next level,” said Bob Romeo, CEO of Anaqua. “Our software will increase the firm’s workflow capabilities, allowing its attorneys to have access to all of their information in one customizable system.”


Founded in 2002, FisherBroyles, LLP is the first and world’s largest distributed law firm partnership. The Next Generation Law Firm® has grown to over 230 attorneys in 21 offices nationwide. The FisherBroyles’ efficient and cost-effective Law Firm 2.0® model leverages talent and technology instead of unnecessary overhead that does not add value to our clients, all without sacrificing BigLaw quality.
