Schiff Hardin LLP is pleased to announce that Imron Aly, partner and Intellectual Property Group co-leader, has been recognized as a Most Influential Minority Lawyer in Chicago by Crain’s Chicago Business. Aly was selected for his IP litigation accomplishments and strong commitment to mentoring fellow Indian-American and minority attorneys.
Drawing from his industry experience, Aly identified an unmet need in the India-based generic pharmaceutical market. He has since been instrumental in growing the firm’s Hatch-Waxman and Biosimilars Practice, which today represents eight leading Indian pharmaceutical manufacturers. One of his most recent courtroom successes secured a critical preliminary injunction in federal court that allowed US-based client Fresenius Kabi to retain its market share for a patented thyroid formulation.
Additionally, Aly serves on the Chicago Committee on Minorities in Large Law Firms board, providing counsel to improve training and mentorship programs to support minority lawyers. He is also a former board member for the Metropolitan Tenants Organization, helping advocate for safe and accessible housing. Throughout the course of his career, he has contributed substantial hours of pro bono advocacy on the issues of prisoner rights and elder abuse.
