ROCKFORD – Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren s.c. attorney Timothy P. Naill has earned his Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree in Intellectual Property Law from The John Marshall Law School. Naill graduated with honors in January 2016.

Prior to his legal career, Naill served for 20 years as a U.S. Navy Surface Warfare Officer with deployments at sea as an Anti-Submarine Warfare Officer and Gas Turbine Main Propulsion Officer, and on the ground as an Operations Officer in Kabul, Afghanistan.
