Chicago (PRWEB) July 9, 2009
In the midst of a challenging economic environment for most American law firms, a new law firm comprised of veteran attorneys and patent agents is off to a fast start in Chicago.
Hallihan IP Partners, founded by William J. "Hal" Hallihan in the spring, has already been engaged by a number of Midwestern companies to handle a variety of intellectual property matters, including patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret and unfair competition cases.
Hallihan's concept in forming the boutique firm was to assemble a team of highly experienced professionals without the typical overhead and business practices often associated with the larger IP law firms.
"Each member of our team is an experienced professional with a medical, scientific, software or engineering degree, and several have advanced graduate degrees as well as practical working experience in their fields," explained Hallihan, who has 15 years of experience as an IP attorney and has counseled clients as small as a single individual to as large as a Fortune 500 company. "Moreover, our team offers a diverse range of language skills - including French, German, Japanese, Spanish, Serbo-Croatian and Swedish - that make it easier for us to assist clients with international legal matters."
According to Hallihan, the firm's IP specialists have counseled clients worldwide on patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret, computer law, entertainment, Internet issues and matters before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, various state and federal courts and the International Trade Commission (ITC). The specialists at Hallihan IP Partners have particular experience with highly complex intellectual property litigation and patent and trademark prosecution, and the firm's litigators have earned a reputation for consistent success with defending clients in patent cases brought in the notoriously "plaintiff-friendly" Eastern District of Texas.
The new firm is located at 117 N. Jefferson, Suite 200, in downtown Chicago. For more information about Hallihan IP Partners, please go to http://www.hallihan.com or call 312.784.3000.
