Firms

Baker McKenzie LLP 

Baker McKenzie’s Chicago-based lawyers all get excellent feedback, making it clear that they are performing at an extremely high-level – as a local group it is, perhaps, one of the best across the firm’s network. “David Davis is a trusted lawyer and business adviser. He takes excellent care of global portfolios for companies which have very diverse groups of products and services. He provides prompt and thoughtful advice and is a pleasure to partner with.” “Lisa Parker Gates does a brilliant job overseeing other Baker McKenzie offices and non-Baker McKenzie firms. She is thorough, practical, accessible, business-minded and great at giving strategic global portfolio management advice.” “Shima Roy is brilliant when it comes to trademark infringement matters and shows an exceptional emotional understanding. She does her absolute best for her clients and is a highly valuable resource.”

Banner & Witcoff, Ltd

Stalwart Chicago-headquartered boutique Banner & Witcoff registers hundreds of US and foreign trademarks each year and manages more than 12,000 active trademarks – it certainly knows the ins-and-outs of prosecution and how to register rights efficiently. The team makes regular – and victorious – appearances in major litigations too. Speaking of which, Christopher Renk recently scored the winner for Converse in one of the biggest International Trade Commission trademark litigations ever; the case was against Wal-Mart, Skechers and 30 others who violated Converse’s trade dress rights by selling imitations of the Chuck Taylor All Star shoe. Helen Hill Minsker and Richard Stockton also litigate proficiently but double up as portfolio managers. Coming in for particular praise, “Helen makes her extensive experience count in everything she does and is a huge asset to have on side. She is an excellent communicator and devises strategies that make sense from both a legal and business perspective. She’s more like a part of your team than simply an external representative.” Stockton takes care of some prestigious clients, including Schneider Electric whose worldwide portfolio he takes care of.

Barnes & Thornburg LLP

Barnes & Thornburg’s potent national trademark group has the art of brand protection and enforcement well and truly mastered. It provides a consistently excellent tailored service to clients of all sizes across all industries. A deep bench in Chicago starts with Michael Carrillo and Melissa Vallone, both of whom are strategic counsellors par excellence with abundant licensing and transactional expertise. John Gabrielides is an anchor of the local and firmwide litigation practices. His expertise in damages and surveys gives him an edge over many of his opponents. Crossing the contentious/non-contentious and patent/trademark divides artfully, Jonathan Froemel is a Swiss-army knife of an IP lawyer. The best feedback is reserved for litigator and counsellor Christopher Dolan. “Chris is an accomplished trial and appellate lawyer. He understands his clients’ core principles and long and short-term business objectives and leverages that to tailor effective solutions. He keeps you updated on how matters progress and shows great tact and consideration of others.”

Brinks Gilson & Lione 

Gold-rated Brinks Gilson & Lione – and its most famous practitioner Jerome Gilson, the author of oft-cited tome Gilson on Trademarks – has been at the vanguard of trademark law for many decades. The technically adept and large team maintains a sophisticated international practice that encompasses all aspects of brand protection; time and time again the group also delivers textbook-worthy cross-examinations and sterling all-around courtroom performances in landscape-altering litigations. Strong leadership is provided by Andrew Avsec and Howard Michael. Avsec, a counsellor and litigator, garners glowing notices from clients: “He’s an excellent trademark lawyer for anything challenging. Smart, practical, responsive, knowledgeable and with unfailing common sense, he’s the complete package. Andrew has exceptional international awareness and understands the business needs of his clients.” Michael is a global trademark enforcement and dispute resolution maestro; of late he has handled ongoing trademark and licensing work for Stericycle, TTAB proceedings for Konica Minolta and aggressive enforcement for Sallie Mae (whose trademark portfolio he has also recently been assigned). In Jeffery Handelman, Brinks has an authority on TTAB proceedings – he has written a treatise on the subject and has many years of experience representing marquee brands. Commercially attuned Susan Frohling truly knows how to approach things from her client’s perspective; she served as chief trademark counsel at Kraft Foods overseeing some 60,000 trademarks. David Fleming is yet another IP celebrity and author. An international thought leader who has held headline roles in INTA and other organisations, he projects gravitas in the courtroom and strategic wisdom when it comes to portfolio management.

DLA Piper LLP (US)

Dynamite lawyers Keith Medansky and Mark Feldman anchor one of the most vibrant brands practices around at international heavyweight DLA Piper. The firm’s Chicago contingent is efficient and precise on prosecution, direct and decisive in the courtroom and deft around the licensing and transactions negotiation table. On Medansky, one client comments: “Keith is a go-to for extremely complicated contentious matters in which much is on the line, as well as for the optimal day-to-day management of the portfolios of iconic brands. He is a pragmatic counsellor and accomplished strategist whose knowledge, experience and work ethic marks him out as one of the best.” Another adds: “He doesn’t charge for the little things and is incredibly cost effective. He has seen how things play out and he gives practical advice that is alive to commercial risk.” According to one source: “Feldman has a level of knowledge that surpasses any other trademark counsel. He is responsive and timely and has a 100% success rate for us. He can handle anything you can throw at him.”

Greenberg Traurig LLP

Some of the brightest stars in Greenberg Traurig’s absolutely stacked trademark and brand management group can be found in the Windy City. Take global IP and technology practice co-chair Mark Galis, for example. “Mark develops long and deep relationships with his clients and is able, therefore, to provide guidance rooted in a strong historical knowledge of their product portfolios, business practices and risk tolerances; senior management have the utmost respect for him because of it too. Mark is an extremely collaborative partner who thinks outside the box to find solutions, and he’s great at assembling cross-functional teams from the wider GT platform to meet diverse needs. He stays on top of everything and communicates complicated information clearly and concisely with a broad audience in mind.” Then there is Marc Trachtenberg, a connoisseur of all things internet-related. Clients say they “couldn’t be happier with his work” and cite him as “a world-leading expert on domain names who provides sound, practical advice on a prompt and timely basis”. Jeffrey Dunning specialises in everything to do with intellectual property. He concentrates on US and foreign trademark protection, oppositions and enforcement, but litigates and issues opinions in all IP areas. Alongside Galis, he represents Blount International and WW Grainger.

Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP

Katten’s service capability in the trademark area is boundless – its team can handle any task in any corner of the world that is thrown at it. New partners have been added to the group in Texas and DC, but things have been stable in Chicago, where Floyd Mandell and Kristin Achterhof – 18 and 22-year veterans of the firm respectively – reside. “Floyd is a go-to trademark counsel for numerous top brands. A veteran who brings a wealth of practical experience to complicated matters, he is a tireless advocate for his clients.” “He is a leading litigator who looks inside and outside the box for solutions. He is very sensitive to the needs of his clients and understands their business vision.” Achterhof is hailed as “brilliant in litigation and counselling”. She takes the reins on global enforcement for Lenovo and Motorola.

Kirkland & Ellis LLP

Celebrated for its handling of IP cases that develop the law and determine the commercial fates of the parties involved, Kirkland & Ellis is a redoubtable force in litigation in any forum. Chicago-based Robin McCue never lets the side down. A tenacious fighter, she recently successfully defeated a request for a preliminary injunction brought against her client, Lidl US. The matter required swift and decisive action and McCue delivered solid survey evidence, among other things, to get the job done.

Leydig, Voit & Mayer, Ltd

When it comes to intellectual property, Leydig, Voit & Mayer has accumulated infinite wisdom – it has practiced at the cutting edge of trademark and copyright law since 1893. Fast-forward 126 years from the firm’s establishment and Mark Liss, Tamara Miller, Claudia Stangle and Kevin Parks carry on the legacy of their forebears by providing clear-cut advice encompassing everything brand-related. Liss and Miller unite to give Whirlpool a strong one-two punch in district court litigation and the TTAB. Stangle handles tricky contentious matters for Jim Beam Brands and Maker’s Mark Distillery within her excellent TTAB, federal court litigation and ICANN proceedings practice. Parks is a noted authority on copyright law and the music industry, but also an ace on trademarks. Recently he has served as lead counsel for L Brands and Victoria’s Secret in a trademark and copyright infringement case arising in connection with a new fragrance product.

Loeb & Loeb LLP

Loeb & Loeb’s interdisciplinary scheme of thinking regarding trademark law, technology, and advertising puts it in pole position to counsel clients on consumer branding and marketing matters. The firm has a not-so-secret weapon in Chicago-based Douglas Masters, a hugely popular source of insightful counsel and robust representation in litigation. Of Masters, one client comments: “I called contacts at four big corporations in the Chicagoland area and asked who they would work with if they had a difficult dispute with a major competitor, and Doug’s was the one name on the list of all four. He provides creative, sensible, cost-effective solutions – in one case he saved us hundreds of thousands of dollars. He stands out for his amazing creativity and ability to see things from multiple perspectives.” “He has a great understanding of the sports industry” and recently obtained permanent injunctive relief – plus attorneys’ fees – on behalf of the National Collegiate Athletic Association in a TTAB proceeding. He has also lately acted for Wm Wrigley Jr in litigation against several manufacturers and marketers of nicotine-based e-liquids for vaping.

Marshall, Gerstein & Borun LLP 

Chicago boutique Marshall, Gerstein & Borun marries a top-end patent practice with eminent trademark capabilities to be all things to all IP owners. The firm understands the ingredients required to create a strong and distinctive brand and, deploying smart online systems and databases, works leanly and efficiently to achieve patrons’ commercial goals. Assured leadership is provided to the trademark and copyright group by Gregory J Chinlund. A balanced and measured counsellor with a background in marketing and business, he has the keys to unlock brand value for his clients and is more than just a protector. “He provides efficient and clear advice, gets great results and is a classy guy who sees the big picture.” Richard M LaBarge is a veteran prosecutor of both patents and trademarks and, thanks to this duality, brings coherence to large and diverse portfolios, which is why many top pharmaceutical companies seek him out. Maureen Beacom Gorman oversees brand protection and enforcement efforts and is “excellent at finding creative solutions”, as a former examiner, she has a fine-milled knowledge of the USPTO’s workings and tendencies and she is also an ace when it comes to online infringement.

Mayer Brown LLP

“Mayer Brown is highly efficient and always has practical solutions to overcome obstacles faced in the trademark area.” Epitomising this problem-solving efficacy is Michael Adams, who co-leads the firm’s global brand management and internet group. He maintains a vibrant practice in which he acts as global trademark counsel for Beam Suntory, CIBC, Diners Club International, Discover Financial Services and Pulse Network Services and as US counsel for Lindt & Sprüngli. For several of these he links up with Richard Assmus, a superior IP transactions expert and litigator.

McDermott Will & Emery

McDermott maintains a thriving brands practice and has a large and accomplished team of professionals ready to deploy at a moment’s notice. An ability to work seamlessly across the United States, Europe and Asia is one of the defining features of the stable and consistent group; another is market-leading expertise in the alcoholic drinks sector. Using Chicago as her base, Jennifer Mikulina oversees the global trademark prosecution practice with poise and finesse. She safeguards the global portfolio of Terlato Wines, which encompasses more than 80 wine and spirits brands. Not confined to food and beverages though, she has a diverse client following that includes outdoor product manufacturer Granite Gear, on whose behalf she handles domain name disputes and TTAB proceedings and Hitachi, who she counsels broadly on selection, use, protection and enforcement. Christina Martini also has broad sector knowledge and a concomitantly varied clientele; advertising, unfair competition and internet-related matters are her strong suit and, by all accounts, she performs excellently. “Christina is one of the best IP lawyers you could hope to work with – her business acumen is outstanding. She always keeps an eye on budgets and is very cost-conscious and up front on fees.” Margaret Duncan is the local crew’s resident litigator. She seeks to resolve rather than just fight trademark cases, but has the trial expertise to confidently go the distance and emerge victorious when required.

Neal & McDevitt

Neal & McDevitt makes its debut appearance in the WTR 1000 this year; it acquits itself with distinction in trademark counselling, prosecution and litigation, and has all the advertising, marketing, trade secret and unfair competition law expertise an iconic brand owner could want. Co-founder of the firm Kevin McDevitt has worldly wisdom accumulated over decades in the practice and as a frontline participant in INTA – he has chaired the organisation’s Leadership Development Committee and won its Volunteer Service Award for the Advancement of Committee Objectives. Another lawyer who is “tremendously respected by all” is Lisa Iverson, a “profoundly knowledgeable all-rounder who is really approachable”. “An extremely articulate advocate and excellent brief writer”, Richard Biagi is one of the top litigators on deck.

Neal Gerber & Eisenberg LLP

For a tailored, personal, rigorously commercial and results-oriented IP service look to entrepreneurially minded Chicago outfit Neal Gerber & Eisenberg. Lee Eulgen, Antony McShane and Michael Kelber form the backbone of the IP team and do a wonderful job, collectively and individually, in must-win lawsuits and critical transactions. Eulgen has impressive litigation credentials and recently prevailed on behalf of Duracell in trademark infringement litigation brought by Energizer. Gutsy enforcer McShane, who co-founded the group with Eulgen, is lead counsel for DRL Enterprises in one of the longest-pending TTAB litigations focussing on the issue of whether a numeral can serve as a trademark. He does a lot of protection and portfolio work too, and is equally proficient there. Kelber has added to his excellent winning record recently by securing a preliminary injunction for GI Sportz shutting down Valken’s sales of a paintball product line.

Norvell IP LLC

“Norvell IP has assembled a great team of talented, extremely thorough and skilled lawyers.” Joseph Norvell, who set up the firm 12 years ago, provides high-level strategic guidance on convoluted trademark matters to household-name brands – and does so for a reassuringly sensitive price. His extensive litigation and TTAB experience – he is one of the most prolific filers of oppositions – dramatically enhances the long-term value of his counsel. Some of his top colleagues include fellow litigator Tom Monagan and Joseph Kucala, a brand protection, enforcement and transactions maven.

Pattishall, McAuliffe, Newbury, Hilliard & Geraldson LLP

Protecting and nurturing brands is the passion of historic firm Pattishall. It has been at the forefront of trademark practice for over 135 years, acts for a panoply of marquee brands and is active in nearly every country of the world. It also has one of the deepest reservoirs of top trademark talent of any firm in the United States, even those with large groups in multiple offices. The meritocratic group has many famous names within it: “Janet Marvel demonstrates impressive range as a counsellor and litigator, she has impeccable judgement and deep subject-matter expertise and can be trusted with your most important intellectual assets. Her advice is very pragmatic and gets straight to the point.” “Belinda Scrimenti has a vast knowledge of trademark law and provides effective international solutions. She is hugely experienced at litigating trade identity disputes and is an outstanding and skilful attorney.” “Belinda and Bradley Cohn provide an excellent and efficient service. They understand their clients’ needs and take care of them promptly and with the minimum amount of fuss. They clearly explain necessary courses of action and keep lines of communication open at all times.” “Robert Sacoff is an extremely thorough lawyer”, an ace on TTAB proceedings and internet-related matters as well as a leader in various IP organisations, he is “truly impressive”. Another authoritative all-rounder, Thad Chaloemtiarana is “particularly strong on complex litigation matters”; the same can be said for Phillip Barengolts, a lead trial and appellate lawyer with an incisive knowledge of internet and e-commerce law and Brett August, an agile litigator with a gift for facilitating early wins. David Hilliard is often called on as an expert witness, such is the depth of his knowledge and litigation experience. He writes extensively on the law and takes to the podium as a lecturer to share his knowledge. Jonathan Jennings and Joseph Welch II spread the trademark law word widely too; Jennings recently became a member of the INTA Leadership Development Committee; and Welch II has written extensively for the benefit of students and fellow practitioners.

Reed Smith LLP

With well-built trademark teams operating in the United Kingdom and the United States, Reed Smith is a discerning choice for companies with transatlantic business interests. Anchoring the practice in Chicago is John Cullis, an experienced lead litigation counsel and TTAB practitioner. Joining him on deck is Robert Browne, a senior counsel who serves as a strategic sounding board for clients and colleagues on litigation strategy and IP transactions.

Winston & Strawn LLP 

Global trademark protection and enforcement is something that international powerhouse Winston & Strawn excels at. Prowess in internet enforcement and ICANN matters is a particularly popular ability for the group and especially the team built around Chicago-based Paul McGrady. A lecturer on cyber law and the author of multiple works on domain names and social media – and a veteran of more than 500 UDRP proceedings – McGrady is a beacon of light for those who need to swiftly resolve online brand protection problems. He is also an astute portfolio manager. Ronald Rothstein, meanwhile, is an out-and-out litigator. He mines a particularly rich seam of experience in the food and beverage sector.

Other recommended experts

Jill Anderfuren of Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith is “very experienced and creative when it comes to prosecution and strategy”. She gets fast-growing companies to where they need to be in double-quick time. Patrick Arnold is a first-chair litigator at McAndrews, Held & Malloy – a firm which is known for its first-rate trial skills. His colleague Ronald DiCerbo is also nimble in the courtroom; alongside his litigation work, he maintains a well-rounded IP prosecution and licensing practice. Angelo Bufalino is a new entrant in the WTR 1000 this year thanks to endorsements from international associates. The Vedder Price professional gives “succinct and commercial advice” infused with strategic wisdom distilled from nearly 40 years in IP practice. Drinker Biddle Chicago partner Darren Cahr is a savvy litigator with a well-rounded knowledge of marketing and advertising law. Luke DeMarte is a source of practical advice on trademarks for companies operating in the retail, sports, alcoholic beverages, consumer products and financial services sector. The Michael Best & Friedrich partner recently mounted a strong case for Ariel Investments to obtain a permanent injunction against competitor Ariel Capital Advisors. Jami Gekas blends expertise in trademark, advertising, marketing and copyright law and dispenses holistic solutions to Foley & Lardner clients because of it. Her colleague Craig Fochler showcases similarly broad expertise, which he puts to good use in the food and beverage sector. Andrew Goldstein runs his IP practice out of the corporate division of Freeborn & Peters. He is a touchpoint for technology companies when they have complex copyright and trademark matters on their hands. At K&L Gates, Sana Hakim manages the portfolios of multinationals with a deft touch; she has an extensive oppositions practice and is also adept in a transactional context, making her the complete package. Litigator Thomas Holt is Perkins Coie’s man in Chicago. Lately he has handled important trade dress actions for a leading global food company. Marsha K Hoover is building up a fine IP practice at business and financial firm Goldberg Kohn. Functioning more like a member of her clients’ in-house teams, she sews up airtight trademark protection in the United States and internationally while fighting off competitors in court. Michele Katz of Advitam IP, LLC is an intrepid litigator who routinely comes out on top against fakers and other infringers. She is a touchpoint for brand owners from the Hispanophone world. Paula Jill Krasny joined Levenfeld Pearlstein in August 2018. Brand owners seeking cost-effective, but high-quality advice on global brand development and commercialisation should give her a call. Bart Lazar of Seyfarth Shaw stops counterfeiters in their tracks; away from the enforcement frontlines he counsels clients on IP strategy implementation and in the areas of data privacy, advertising and social media. He knows how to keep demanding clients such as Red Bull happy. Davis McGrath lawyer William McGrath is an authority on copyright law but also an excellent litigator and counsellor in the trademark field. Mark Partridge of Partridge Partners is “very much a thought leader” when it comes to trademark law, domain names and alternative dispute resolution. He has maintained healthy brands for Fortune 500 companies for decades. As an anti-counterfeiting strategist James Saul does not mess around – he gets straight to the heart of cases and makes smart decisions with business objectives in mind. He can be found at Faegre Baker Daniels. Among those recommended in the WTR 1000, nobody knows quite as much as Catherine Simmons-Gill about the concerns and needs of in-house counsel – she has had an illustrious in-house career and held multiple general counsel and chief trademark counsel positions. The former INTA president is also hugely experienced in private practice; she now runs her own self-titled firm. Barack Ferrazzano Kirschbaum & Nagelberg lawyer Scott Slavick has “an excellent understanding of global trademark issues and regulatory law”. Brett Tolpin knows all about the business of brands and tackles whatever problems his clients have armed with expertise in all aspects of trademark management, defence, enforcement and licensing. He runs a boutique under his own name. In Matthew Walch Latham & Watkins has “a stand-out litigator and counsellor”. He thrives in the cut and thrust of litigation but understands that litigation is not an end in itself – he knows how to keep clients out of court as well as he knows how to fight inside it. Ulmer & Berne’s Thomas Williams is a reference for major brand owners like Luxottica, whose US Customs enforcement matters he handles in relation to the Ray-Ban and Oakley brands. A well-organised practitioner who stays calm and collected, he is serving as counsel for Dependable Sales & Service and more than 100 other plaintiffs in a major unfair competition suit against TrueCar. Amy Ziegler of Greer, Burns & Crain commands the respect of the market for her anti-counterfeiting prowess. Outside of enforcement, she keeps client portfolios in fine fettle and manages a substantial docket of opposition and cancellation proceedings.
