Welcome Christopher J. McGeehan!

The Northern Law Blog is pleased to announce the addition of Christopher J. McGeehan as new contributor to the site. Chris is a principal at McGeehan Technology Law, Ltd., where he concentrates his practice in intellectual property, information technology and commercial litigation matters at both the trial and appellate level in state and federal court. He is a registered patent attorney and a member of the Northern District of Illinois trial bar.

Chris received his A.B. from Dartmouth College in 1992, where he was a Presidential Scholar. After graduating from The John Marshall Law School in 2002, where he was awarded Herzog and Rosenberg Scholarships and received both his J.D. and L.L.M. in Intellectual Property, he worked in the area of creditors’ rights as a solo practitioner in Chicago. He then joined an intellectual property boutique where he focused on patent and trademark matters.

He is active in several bar associations, including the American Bar Association, the Chicago Bar Association and the Intellectual Property Law Association of Chicago. He is a past chair of the Chicago Bar Association’s Intellectual Property Law Committee and current chair of the Cyberlaw and Data Privacy Committee. He also previously served as a Director of the Chicago Bar Association’s Young Lawyer Section.

He is a co-author of several chapters of the 2009 IICLE on Creditors’ Rights and he helped draft several recent amendments to the Illinois Code of Civil Procedure relating to enforcement of judgments.

This is a tremendous addition to the Northern Law Blog. We look forward to hearing from Chris in the very near future.
