WHO WE ARE

Chicago Women in IP (ChiWIP) is a networking and mentoring group committed to the connection, promotion and success of professional Chicago women in all stages of practice of every facet of IP law. 

 

Through regularly scheduled events, we offer seminars, knowledge sharing, career resources, and leadership opportunities for personal and professional development. ChiWIP provides a forum for women professionals in the field of intellectual property to share their successes and challenges with other women more openly than they might with colleagues at their own firms.

Laura DeMoor

ChiWIP In-House Advisory Committee Member

Laura DeMoor, a member of ChiWIP’s In-House Advisory Committee, is Associate General Counsel, Intellectual Property, at Baxter Healthcare Corporation, where she is in charge of managing IP litigation in the US and abroad, IP due diligence, IP transactions, patent prosecution, and many other facets of intellectual property law for Baxter’s Pharmaceuticals business.  Laura has been at Baxter for over 15 years, and over time has worked on both generic and branded pharmaceuticals, so is familiar with the often opposing perspectives in the Hatch-Waxman space.  At Baxter, she enjoys managing multiple projects, often global in scope.  She is most proud of an expansive product launch spanning numerous continents, including Asia, Europe, North America, and South America, that involved adversarial proceedings to achieve success in all of these regions. She oversees the IP legal aspects of the businesses that she supports and engages with various functions (from R&D to marketing) to create strategies for developing, launching, and improving products.  Prior to becoming an in-house attorney, she was a partner at Banner & Witcoff, Ltd., working primarily in intellectual property litigation.
