Christopher M. Kaiser

Christopher KaiserChris Kaiser received his undergraduate degree in chemical engineering from the Colorado School of Mines in 1996. Following five and a half years as an engineer working on projects in the oil business in deep water offshore in the Gulf of Mexico and in the Alaskan arctic, he began his studies at Chicago-Kent. Mr. Kaiser graduated with high honors in 2005. While at Chicago-Kent, he served as a notes and comments editor on the Chicago-Kent Law Review, represented the school in the Lefkowitz trademark moot court competition, and published a Note criticizing the Federal Circuit for extending its formalist jurisprudence into the area of contracts of adhesion.

Mr. Kaiser is currently an associate in the Chicago office of Kirkland & Ellis LLP, working on intellectual property litigation matters. He has participated in litigation and client counseling in patent, copyright, and trade secret misappropriation cases, and his clients have included companies in the gaming, engineering consulting, telecommunications, electronic trading, and e-commerce businesses. Mr. Kaiser recently published the article "Patent Drafter Estoppel: Why Didn't Sage Products Create a New Foreseeability Limitation on the Application of the Doctrine of Equivalents?" in the Journal of Intellectual Property Law, and he is planning to begin a clerkship with the Honorable George W. Miller of the United States Court of Federal Claims in August 2007.
