Lawrence H. Aaronson

McDonnell Boehnen Hulbert & Berghoff LLP

Chicago, IL, USA

Larry H. Aaronson is a partner with McDonnell Boehnen Hulbert & Berghoff LLP and serves as Chair of the firm's Telecommunications Practice Group. Mr. Aaronson's practice has grown over the years to focus primarily on patent prosecution, with a strong emphasis on telecommunications and software technology including cellular wireless communications and computing systems. Clients appreciate Mr. Aaronson's efficiency and skill in managing their respective patent portfolios. In particular, clients admire his attention to relevant detail and ability to communicate sensibly and productively with their engineers and other inventors. Recognizing the important strategic business value of patents, Mr. Aaronson seamlessly assists in-house counsel by interacting directly with inventors and helping to identify and secure protection of key inventions. As such, he can and often does function as an "outside in-house counsel." Given his extensive patent prosecution experience, Mr. Aaronson also routinely trains less experienced attorneys at the firm.

Mr. Aaronson's representative experience includes:
• Representing one of the nation’s major cellular carriers for over twenty years, managing patent prosecution matters and gaining practical expertise in LTE and numerous other wireless communication systems, networks, and services.
• Representing an international medical device manufacturer in patent prosecution matters related to hearing prosthesis technology.
• Representing a large multimedia company in patent prosecution matters related to automatic content recognition and publishing.
• Representing a global technology company in patent prosecution matters involving telecommunications and software related inventions.
• Representing clients in prosecution matters related to other diverse technology areas ranging from Internet of Things (IoT), to user interfaces, to artificial intelligence analysis and development of molecular structures, to DNA image analysis, to collision-repair-shop processing. 

Mr. Aaronson is also a veteran cast member of the Chicago Bar Association’s renowned Bar Show.  In the show since 2000, Larry has played characters including Kermit the Frog, a bed bug, and a recurring role as Rahm Emanuel. Behind the scenes, Larry also serves as the Bar Show's marketing director and graphic artist, designing the cover art and associated materials.
