Intellectual Property Litigator Graduates from “Emerging Leaders” Program

Khurram Naik, an associate at national law firm Polsinelli, has successfully completed The Chicago Bar Association’s 2016 Leadership Institute. Naik is an intellectual property attorney with a practice focusing on Hatch-Waxman litigation for generic pharmaceutical companies. 

The year-long Leadership Institute is designed to foster the professional growth of emerging leaders within Chicago’s legal community, offering practical knowledge and business development strategies necessary to attain and be successful in significant leadership roles, according to a statement from the Chicago Bar Association.

“The Chicago Bar Association, through the Leadership Institute and other programs, provides great opportunities for attorneys at all levels to hone their skills, enabling them to excel in their fields of practice,” said Gary Hood, vice-chair of Polsinelli's Intellectual Property Practice Group and leader of the firm's Hatch-Waxman practice. “As a firm, we’re committed to supporting emerging leaders like Khurram in their continued development, ensuring that our clients benefit from the work of the very best legal talent available.”

Naik, a graduate of The John Marshall Law School and former judicial extern in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, plans to stay involved in the Leadership Institute by acting as a mentor to a member of the 2017 class and participating in the program’s alumni events.
