Howard & Howard, a full-service nationwide law firm, announced partner Daniel Chojnowski has been named chair of the firm’s intellectual property practice group, operating out of its Royal Oak office.
“Dan’s considerable talent as an IP attorney and his expansive knowledge of our firm’s IP clients, our processes and our people make him ideally situated to lead our Intellectual Property Practice Group,” says Jon Kreucher, president and CEO of the firm. “He has a client-first focus and the legal, management and communications skills to direct internal and client teams, all of which strengthen our client relationships and our IP group.”
Chojnowski’s practice focuses on global patent procurement, opinion work, freedom-to-operate investigations, and global IP portfolio management in the chemical, mechanical, and medical device industries. He also has experience in preparing and prosecuting U.S. and foreign design patent applications.
