Larry Crain

Meet IPLAC Member, Larry Crain!

Q:  How long have you been a member of IPLAC?

A:  Since 1987.

Q:  What is your practice like?

A:  I cover many aspects of IP, including patent and trademark prosecution, contested trademark matters, patent litigation and some anti-counterfeiting work.

Q:  What do you enjoy the most about being an IP attorney in Chicago?

A:  The Chicago IP community is still relatively intimate compared to the larger legal universe here. I enjoy working in my home town, and showing off our architectural and musical heritage to foreign colleagues when they visit.

A:  The camaraderie at seminars and meetings, and of course the golf outing!

Q:  What do you like to do for fun, whether IP-related or not?
