Mr. Halligan has successfully represented both individuals and corporations as plaintiffs and defendants in federal and state courts throughout the United States. In recent years, Mr. Halligan has been at the forefront of international developments in intellectual property law, and he is a recognized thought leader in the ever-growing area of trade secrets law having spoken worldwide to numerous organizations and corporations on the topic — most recently Practicing Law Institute ("PLI"); the Intellectual Property Law Association of Chicago ("IPLAC"); the 26th Annual Trade Secrets Seminar at the John Marshall Law School; the American Intellectual Property Law Association ("AIPLA") 2015 Trade Secret Summit; the American Bar Association ("ABA") Section of Litigation, 60th Annual Conference on Developments in Trade Secrets Law; the Symposium on Trade Secret Protection, United States Patent and Trademark Office—Global Intellectual Property Academy ("GIPA"); and several state bar associations.
