Chicago Associate Donald Cole has been selected to receive the Pro Bono & Public Service Award from the Seventh Circuit Bar Association. The annual award celebrates the legal profession’s commitment to community service and honors outstanding pro bono and public service work by members of the bar.

Cole was nominated by Judge Timothy Barnes of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois for his work in a case that was pending before him. The client had previously represented herself until Judge Barnes submitted a request for the appointment of a volunteer attorney. Chicago Partner Leslie Bayles was Cole’s partner-mentor on the matter. Cole will receive the award April 30 as part of the Annual Meeting of the Seventh Circuit Bar Association and Judicial Conference.

Cole has extensive experience in the fields of intellectual property and commercial contract disputes, including litigation and counseling. In the area of intellectual property law, he has advised a wide variety of clients in trademark registration, protection and enforcement. He also has advised clients concerning the creation, maintenance and protection of copyright interests. Cole also serves on the adjunct faculty at the Loyola University Chicago School of Law, where he teaches a seminar on copyright and trademark litigation.
