Four former shareholders of Niro Law, Ltd. – Robert A. Vitale, Paul K. Vickrey, Dean D. Niro and Arthur A. Gasey – have founded the new firm of Vitale, Vickrey, Niro and Gasey LLP. The new firm will primarily focus its practice on three areas: commercial litigation, intellectual property litigation and practice before the Patent and Trademark Office, including patent and trademark prosecution. “I am pleased and proud to be part of this group,” said Dean Niro. “This firm has significant trial experience in high stakes litigation. The firm also has substantial experience in patent prosecution and post issuance proceedings.” Three associates (also departing Niro Law, Ltd.) are joining the firm: Oliver D. Yang, Gretchen L. Schmidt and Dylan M. Brown. The firm’s offices will be located at 311 South Wacker, Suite 2470.
