Chambers USA 2023 Recognizes Fitch Even and Partner Tim Maloney

June 1, 2023

Fitch, Even, Tabin and Flannery has again been ranked a leading intellectual property law firm in Illinois in the 2023 edition of Chambers USA, a prestigious research-based directory and one of the most widely cited referral sources for legal services in the U.S.

In this year’s listing, Chambers notes in part that the Fitch Even team is known for its “strong reputation for work in the contentious and noncontentious patent matters” and the firm’s “substantial experience handling post-grant, reexamination, and inter partes reviews at the USPTO.” One client is quoted as saying Fitch Even attorneys are “true professionals who can handle multiple complex matters in parallel.” Another client is quoted saying that the firm is “very good at crafting sophisticated strategies that match our business needs, while being conscious of cost pressure.”

In addition, partner Timothy P. Maloney was once again singled out by Chambers as a notable practitioner in the field of intellectual property law in Illinois. Chambers reports that clients observed that Tim is “an excellent lead attorney. He is good at translating complicated issues and has a lot of experience in the court.” Tim’s practice entails all aspects of IP enforcement and defense, with an emphasis on representing patent owners in complex patent litigation and licensing. He is an established trial lawyer with a strong track record in numerous jury and bench trials. Tim has handled over 100 litigation-related patent post-issuance proceedings in the USPTO, consistently achieving favorable outcomes.

Published annually by London-based Chambers & Partners, Chambers USA determines its rankings through confidential, in-depth interviews with clients and outside attorneys as well as through independent research and assessment of recent work done. Inclusion in the guide is based solely on the findings of the Chambers research team. Criteria used includes technical legal ability and experience, capability and effectiveness, client service, commercial vision and business understanding, diligence, value for money, strength and depth of the firm at every level, standards of professional conduct, and other qualities most valued by clients.
