Brinks Hofer Gilson & Lione Company Profile

02:47 EST 25th November 2017 | BioPortfolio

Brinks Hofer Gilson & Lione was founded in 1917 as the two-man patent law firm of Wilkinson & Huxley. Today Brinks has approximately 150 attorneys, supported by a full complement of scientific advisors, patent agents and paralegals. Our headquarters are atop Chicago's preeminent NBC Tower.
We litigate, counsel and prosecute in patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret, unfair competition, Internet and related areas of law. We routinely handle assignments in fields as diverse as electrical, chemical, mechanical, biotechnology, pharmaceutical, nanotechnology and computer technology, as well as in trademarks or brand names for a wide variety of products and services.

Brinks also takes civic pride in providing pro bono legal services to those unable to pay in matters involving eviction, immigration, asylum and criminal matters, as well as non-profits in their intellectual property law matters.

With nearly 90 years of practice experience, the firm has become rich in the history and development of intellectual property law and in the professional associations that serve it. Its members have handled landmark cases before the United States Supreme Court and the regional Courts of Appeals and have held leadership positions in all the major bar and intellectual property law associations.

Founder George Wilkinson argued and won the case in which Justice Frankfurter introduced the term "commercial magnetism" (the quality that entitles a symbol to protection) into the lexicon of trademark law. In 1930, founder Henry Huxley not only handled an active legal practice, but also taught a course in patent law at Northwestern University Law School. Both Wilkinson and Huxley rose to prominence in the American Bar Association's Patent, Trademark and Copyright section
