Konrad Sherinian

Konrad Sherinian represents clients in the areas of intellectual property and personal injury.  In particular, Mr. Sherinian concentrates his practice in four areas:

First, Konrad works with inventors and technology companies to obtain patent protection for their inventions.  Since being admitted to practice before the Patent & Trademark Office in 2004, Konrad has written more than 75 patent applications, with numerous issued patents.  In particular, since this law firm was founded in 2012, more than thirty patents have issued for its clients in technology areas ranging from software to radio controlled aircraft.  

Second, Konrad represents clients in administrative proceedings before the Patent & Trademark Office.  This includes proceedings before the Patent Trials and Appeals Board, as well as the Trademark Trials and Appeals Board.  Konrad has a stellar record in proceedings before both bodies where he has acted as lead attorney.

Third, Konrad represents clients in commercial litigation matters with a primary focus on intellectual property and technology cases in both Illinois and Federal Courts.  Mr. Sherinian’s record in commercial cases is also excellent, and he has often been sought out for active cases weeks before trial.  

Fourth, Konrad represents plaintiffs in personal injury cases.  In particular, Konrad focuses on representing plaintiffs in automobile accidents, incidents of medical malpractice, premises liability, and nursing home abuse.  

Konrad immerses himself in every matter that he handles, and focuses on fully understanding the strengths and weaknesses of each case. His prior career as an engineer and technologist gives him a distinct advantage over less technical attorneys.

Konrad is a prior co-chair of the ABA’s Inequitable Conduct Subcommittee, and has authored multiple articles and made numerous presentations to various industry groups on intellectual property and litigation. He resides in Naperville with his wife and daughter, and, when not in court, is an avid pilot.
