Michael Best Beefs Up Chicago Office With IP Pro


Michael Best & Friedrich LLP has bolstered its intellectual property practice by enlisting a Chicago-based partner from Nixon Peabody LLP who boasts more than 20 years of experience advising clients on patent, trademark and copyright matters.

Peter Prommer has guided a vast range of companies throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia on the growth and protection of their IP portfolios. He told Law360 on Wednesday that before joining Michael Best, he'd been "extremely impressed by the firm's presence in the IP space."

Prommer said he was "seeking a new platform" to further develop his practice, adding that Michael Best aligns with his "desire to grow."

Michael Best said in an announcement Tuesday that Prommer is "strongly established" in the Windy City, providing the firm with a host of new connections.

"Having worked in Chicago for his entire legal career, Peter has great ties to the city and a strong network behind him," said Kerryann H. Minton, managing partner of the firm's Chicago office.

Prommer graduated magna cum laude from the University of Illinois College of Law in 2003 and worked for Chicago-based IP firm McAndrews Held & Malloy Ltd.
