Lalor Named Voting Shareholder

June 11, 2015

Boyle Fredrickson, Wisconsin’s largest, full service intellectual property law firm, has added Eric J. Lalor as a voting shareholder.

An intellectual property attorney, Lalor, 38, is an experienced counselor and prosecutor. He joined Boyle Fredrickson in 2007. Lalor’s practice focuses on the mechanical arts, and through his counsel, he emphasizes strategic IP portfolio development to correspond with his clients’ overall business goals. He identifies and evaluates intellectual property opportunities and risks, prepares and prosecutes patent applications for inventions, and prepares right-to-practice and patentability opinions for products and concepts. In his new role, he will be able to vote on issues affecting the firm and take on management responsibilities for clients.

“Eric’s passion for patent law comes from his admiration for the innovation it incentivizes — and it drives his commitment to our clients, which is highly valued by the firm,” says Jim Boyle, firm shareholder and one of its founders. “We happily welcome him as a partner and equity shareholder.”

Lalor served as a blacksmith apprentice and worked at an IP firm in Appleton, Wis., before joining Boyle Fredrickson. He graduated from Marquette University Law School in 2003. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Sciences from the University of Wisconsin.

Lalor is licensed to practice law in Wisconsin, a member of the state bar association, and is registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.  Learn more about Eric, by viewing the video below.
