Craig C. Martin, Chairman, Midwest, has been named to the IAM Strategy 300 Global Leaders 2024, an annual guide to the world’s elite IP strategists.  

Craig was recognized among the “IP luminaries” who excel in maximizing the value of patent portfolios and whose “approach to intellectual property is regarded by peers as truly strategic in nature.”

A top trial lawyer and business leader, Craig’s clients include major corporations and the nation’s most influential families, and he regularly appears as lead counsel in trials and appeals in state and federal courts as well as in domestic and international arbitrations. IAM highlighted his recent IP experience trying a patent arbitration for an international chemical company, winning a major patent infringement verdict for a leading food processing equipment manufacturer, and advising a portfolio of industrial and technology companies in global IP strategy, including IP enforcement campaigns, defensive actions and maintenance.

Craig, a member of Willkie’s Executive Committee, led the opening of the firm’s Chicago office in March 2020 and has quickly established it as a market leader, building a diverse team of 90 attorneys.

IAM Strategy 300 Global Leaders recognizes top IP professionals from across private practice, consulting and other service providers in North America, Europe and Asia.
