Mathew Perrone

Attorney, of Counsel



We regret to share that Mathew R.P. Perrone, Jr. passed away on October 23, 2019 after a long illness. Mat’s impact on all of us is ongoing. He was a wonderful teacher, a practiced orator, a gentleman, a funny fellow who was quick with a joke, and a kind soul. We learned so much from Mat as professionals in the law and as fellow humans. He overcame societal hurdles despite his physical disabilities in a time when the world was not very accommodating, and was never bitter. We are proud to continue his tradition of providing the highest quality services at affordable rates, to support our community, and to serve the intellectual property legal needs of entrepreneurs and small businesses in the Chicago area and beyond. Mat, you will be missed.
