Fitch, Even, Tabin and Flannery LLP has once again been ranked as a leading intellectual property law firm in Illinois in the 2019 edition of Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, 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 spheres of patent, trademark and copyright law” and the firm’s “substantial experience handling post-grant, reexamination and inter partes reviews at the USPTO.” One client is quoted as saying, “They are great; they have a deep understanding of our business and the technologies. They give the best service possible." Another source shared, “The team is excellent; they are very good at what they do, [in] how accessible they are, and [in] their communication."
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 “a great litigator” who is "very analytical and thoughtful.” Tim’s practice entails all aspects of intellectual property enforcement and defense, with an emphasis on representing plaintiffs in patent litigation, often multi-party complex litigation. 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 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.
