Dave Kelly, Managing Partner of Kelly IP, said “We are excited that MIP has again recognized Kelly IP. It is a great honor to be shortlisted as one of only a handful of trademark firms at the top of our profession. The honor is especially gratifying because it recognizes that our boutique firm founded in 2013 competes at the highest level with long-established national and international firms.”
