September 01, 2015

CHICAGO—Intellectual property law firm Brinks Gilson & Lione announced today that Mark H. Remus has rejoined the firm as a partner in its Chicago office. Remus is a seasoned trial lawyer who has served as lead counsel on numerous patent infringement litigation matters. He has represented clients in jury trials, bench trials, and appeals to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court.

Remus has extensive experience with pharmaceutical litigation under the Hatch-Waxman Act. “Adding Mark Remus to our biopharmaceutical and biotechnology team bolsters the firm's practice in this area, and strengthens our Hatch-Waxman capabilities,” said Ralph J. Gabric, co-chair of Brinks' litigation practice group. 'Mark's deep experience with ANDA litigation and his track record of success in this highly technical area will be a genuine benefit to our clients,' added Gabric.

Remus also has experience protecting and defending other technologies, including medical devices, communications networks, cellular telephony, LCD panels, oil drilling equipment, wind turbines, electrical connectors, and mechanical devices. He speaks and writes regularly on current topics in patent law, and consistently has been named by publications and in lists that honor attorney achievement, most recently in The Best Lawyers in America© 2016 and in the IAM Patent 1000 2015—The World’s Leading Patent Professionals. He also was ranked in the top 100 attorneys in the 2015 Illinois Super Lawyers list. Remus earned a B.S. in chemical engineering at the University of Illinois, and earned his J.D. cum laude from the University of Illinois College of Law.

Remus rejoins Brinks from Chicago-based Katten Muchin Rosenman. He previously practiced at Brinks from 1997 to 2011. “I am excited to rejoin my many friends and colleagues at Brinks,  Brinks has been the premier intellectual property firm in Chicago for nearly a century and I look forward to contributing to that tradition,“ Remus said.

Remus’s hiring by Brinks brings to three the number of laterals who have joined Brinks in August. Last week, the firm announced the hiring of intellectual property attorneys Elizabeth Chien-Hale, former in-house counsel at Apple and Eaton Corporation, and Joshua Smith, a specialist in electrical engineering and hardware and software testing.
