Tim concentrates his practice in complex business litigation and intellectual property. He represents companies in a variety of matters including patents and trademarks, products liability, licensing, real estate and construction, and financial transactions. Tim also regularly serves as local counsel for national and international firms, representing clients with cases pending in Indiana's state and federal courts.

Tim formerly practiced with a national firm headquartered in Milwaukee and is licensed in Indiana and Wisconsin. He moved back to the South Bend area in 2003 and co-founded LaDue Curran & Kuehn LLC in 2008.

Since returning to practice in Indiana, Tim has represented international corporations and regional businesses including:

  • a large group of Elkhart businesses in negotiations with the City of Elkhart regarding a proposed municipal sewer services compact;
  • six major motion picture studios and a national motion picture association in several infringement suits over copyrighted films;
  • an international manufacturer of lawn and garden products in a case involving the design and manufacture of snow blowers;
  • a Fortune 25 technology corporation in multiple lawsuits relating to the sale of computer software and hardware;
  • an international orthopedic manufacturer, as local counsel, in a "bet the company" patent infringement action over knee replacement systems; and
  • one of the leading food and beverage companies in the country in a lawsuit involving a multi-state dairy products recall.

Tim was raised in the South Bend area. He graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in pre-law studies from Marquette University (Phi Beta Kappa) and with a J.D. from the Notre Dame Law School. He also studied European Community law while a scholar at University College Galway, Ireland. Based on the results of annual peer review surveys every year from 2009 to 2013, Law & Politics Magazine and Indianapolis Monthly Magazine consistently designated Tim as an “Indiana Rising Star” (one of the top 2.5% of Indiana lawyers 40 and under) and, since 2014, an "Indiana Super Lawyer" (one of the top 5% of all Indiana lawyers).
