Chicago, IL -- McAndrews, Held & Malloy founding partners George P. McAndrews, John J. Held and Timothy J. Malloy were selected for inclusion in the 2011 edition of The Best Lawyers in America®. The McAndrews shareholders were recognized in the specialty areas of intellectual property law and alternative dispute resolution.
Published annually since 1983, Best Lawyers listings are based on surveys from more than 39,000 leading attorneys who cast almost 3.1 million votes that rate the legal abilities of their professional peers. Inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a high honor due to the rigorous methodology used to determine the listings, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed.

He has litigated cases involving mechanical, electrical and chemical subject matter before juries in federal and state courts throughout the United States.
John J.

Nationally recognized for his intellectual property litigation successes in the medical device, electrical and mechanical fields, Timothy J. Malloy has been involved in numerous multi-million dollar verdicts, awards and settlements, and has served as lead counsel in trials throughout the country.
