Chicago, IL, March 29, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Troy A. Groetken, Shareholder and Board Member with McAndrews, Held, & Malloy, Ltd., has joined The Expert Network©, an invitation-only service for distinguished professionals. Mr. Groetken has been chosen as a Distinguished Lawyer™ based on peer reviews and ratings, dozens of recognitions, and accomplishments achieved throughout his career.
Mr. Groetken outshines others in his field due to his extensive educational background, numerous awards and recognitions, and career longevity. He received his B.S. degree in pharmaceutical sciences from Drake University with an eye toward combining his interest in science with his interest in patent law. He went on to obtain his Juris Doctorate in intellectual property law from Drake University Law School, and his Master of Laws from The John Marshall Law School. After working as a clinical consultant pharmacist for a number of years, he began to practice patent law in the scientific arena. He has been recognized by Lawyer Monthly, Super Lawyers Magazine, Best Lawyers, and Law Bulletin Publishing Company, among other honors.
With over 20 years dedicated to law, Mr. Groetken brings a wealth of knowledge to his industry and, in particular, to his area of specialization, patent law and litigation. When asked about his decision to pursue a career in this specialty, Mr. Groetken said:
"When I was growing up, my neighbor was a patent attorney and I always found that to be really cool. He had incredible and unique gadgets from various projects and I wanted to be just like him."
Today, Mr. Groetken is currently a Shareholder and Board Member with McAndrews, Held, & Malloy, Ltd. where he focuses on patent and trademark procurement, as well as enforcement and transactional matters in the advanced chemical, small-molecule pharmaceutical, and biotechnological disciplines.
As a thought-leader in his field, Mr. Groetken keeps his eye on prevailing trends in patent law. In particular, his firm is currently paying attention to the effects of the Halo Decision, a Supreme Court case his firm was involved in that has swung the pendulum in favor of patent holders. He noted:
"Right now we are watching the Halo Decision's effects on treble damages, which allow courts to triple the amount of damages awarded to a plaintiff. We are also utilizing and assisting our clients with a number of critical PTAB decisions with respect to key IPR and PGR issues. Finally, a number of ongoing interpretations of what constitutes infringement (e.g., singular component versus multi-component incorporation outside of the United States), obviousness, patent subject matter eligibility and the like are always important to our clients from both offensive and defensive viewpoints."
Mr. Groetken is also widely recognized for his writing and presentations on topics within the intellectual property field, including patent protection and prosecution, inter partes review matters, global litigation, alternative litigation strategies, and patent best practices with respect to multi-national procurement, licensing, and divestiture of intellectual assets. He is known globally as the “go-to” intellectual property attorney for Fortune 100 and 500 firm clients regarding complex intellectual property matters involving patent portfolio development, implementation and enforcement, and multi-jurisdictional intellectual property integration issues. Mr. Groetken regularly assists clients with a variety of technical disciplines involving the chemical, pharmaceutical and biotechnological arts, encompassing new drug entities, generic pharmaceuticals, biotechnological sciences, including protein and recombinant technologies, food-based technologies, animal compositions, medical devices, and renewable energies, among others.
