In Memoriam: Timothy J. Malloy


Notre Dame Law School | September 11, 2019 

It is with deep sorrow that Notre Dame Law School announces the passing of longtime Law School Advisory Council member Tim Malloy, who died on September 3, 2019.

After earning his B.S. in electrical engineering from Notre Dame in 1966 and his J.D. from Notre Dame Law School in 1969, Malloy went on to win many professional accolades for his work as a nationally recognized patent lawyer.

In 1988, along with fellow Advisory Council member George McAndrews ’59, ’62 J.D., he co-founded the Chicago-based intellectual property law firm McAndrews, Held & Malloy.

McAndrews said, “When Tim Malloy, with electrical engineering and law degrees, asked me to employ him at our patent firm I was overjoyed. Then in 1988 he joined me in founding a new patent firm, McAndrews, Held & Malloy, which rapidly grew to 110 professionals. Tim was spectacular. He worked with me and became one of the best IP litigators in America. I regarded him as a brother and was proud of our shared Notre Dame education.”

In 2003, Malloy joined the Law School Advisory Council. Professor Patricia O’Hara, then dean, noted, “Tim Malloy was an exemplar of the values of mind, heart, and soul that we strive to instill in our students. Recipient of the highest honors from his peers in patent litigation, he was a consummate professional with a finely-honed moral compass and a spirit of service. A devoted husband and beloved father, grandfather, and brother, I will always be grateful for Tim’s advice and counsel during my tenure as dean, as well as for the generous manner in which he and his wife, Patti, shared their time, talent, and treasure with the Law School — in particular, in support of student fellowships.”
