    Attorney Profile

    An accomplished litigator who excels at guiding clients through complicated intellectual property issues, Emer focuses her practice on pharmaceutical patent litigation, post-grant review, opinions and client counseling.

    As a partner at Green, Griffith & Borg-Breen, she takes a solutions-focused approach to her work, digging deep into the technical details to formulate winning legal strategies.

    Emer has broad experience representing both patent holders and defendants in Hatch-Waxman and patent infringement cases. She has served as trial counsel in patent infringement cases before the U.S. District Court, and successfully represented clients in inter partes reviews (IPRs) before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.

    Beyond her many courtroom achievements, Emer is also a savvy business advisor to her clients in the pharmaceutical, life science, biotechnology and chemical industries. Viewing every client as a long-term partnership, Emer considers her counseling role as one that evolves over the full life-cycle of an initiative, from partnering with the client’s technical and business teams to formulate product development and regulatory strategies, all the way through patent litigation and market launch.

    Originally from Ireland, Emer is a qualified Barrister.  Emer was selected as a “Rising Star” the last eight years by Illinois Super Lawyers and as a “Leading Lawyer” by Leading Lawyers (2016-2019).  Emer is an active member of the Intellectual Property Owners Association (IPO) and the Chicago Women in Intellectual Property (ChiWIP).

Before joining Green Griffith, she was an associate at Leydig, Voit and Mayer, Ltd.
