Boyle Fredrickson Shortens Name, Relocates Office

Boyle Fredrickson’s clients value forward thinking in matters of intellectual property law. During the past 12 months the firm has been equally progressive in its endeavors away from the courtroom. In the summer of 2007, the firm shortened its official name from Boyle, Fredrickson, Newholm, Stein & Gratz to simply Boyle Fredrickson. Already Wisconsin’s largest IP law firm, the revised moniker is fast becoming synonymous with excellence in intellectual property law.

Although the name was shortened, Boyle Fredrickson expanded its roster of talented legal professionals. In 2007, the firm welcomed attorneys Christopher Kukowski, Erin Fay, J. Mark Wilkinson, Eric Lalor, Michael Brayer and Michael McGovern to the staff. The new additions bring with them more than 50 years of combined experience working with patents, trademarks and copyrights, as well as valued expertise in dispute resolution and litigation. Boyle Fredrickson’s stable of IP attorneys now includes 20 dedicated associates and shareholders. In 2007, Boyle Fredrickson was responsible for filing 430 patent applications and 153 trademark applications, both firm records.

In addition to the new name and practitioners, Boyle Fredrickson has also taken up a new residence. In July of 2007, the firm relocated to a renovated, two-story structure at 840 N. Plankinton Avenue in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The new offices occupy a turn-of-the-century brick building perched on the west bank of the Milwaukee River. The 13,000 square-foot property provides ample room for Boyle Fredrickson attorneys and their growing list of clients. In November of 2007, Boyle Fredrickson hosted an open house unveiling its impressive new headquarters. The celebratory gala was attended by more than 150 attorneys, clients, friends and members of the media.

Boyle Fredrickson attorneys thank all of their clients for the support they have shown the firm over the past several years. The group will continue to provide the high level of service clients have come to expect. For our future clients – Boyle Fredrickson welcomes you with arms wide open. At Boyle Fredrickson the message is simple: “You’ve got ideas. We protect them.”
