Michael Best has added Bill Carroll to its Chicago-based intellectual property group.

Carroll has joined the firm as senior counsel. He focuses on a variety of areas in the life sciences, including patent prosecution, drafting and management.

Kerryann Haase Minton, managing partner of Michael Best’s Chicago office, said: “We’re delighted that Bill Carroll will be joining our team in Chicago.”

“Our firm continues to focus on bringing cutting edge technology in the life sciences, and Bill Carroll will add to that with his wealth of knowledge in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries—combined with a strong understanding of the quickly evolving intellectual property arena.”

Commenting on the move, Carroll said: “Michael Best’s strong in-house legal and scientific knowledge is increasingly important for clients—and it was a large part of my decision to join the firm.”
