About The Firm

Big Law Skills.
Without Big Law Bills.

Our creative, persuasive, and competitive minds protect and represent the world’s most instantly identifiable marks — and brand owners with dreams of having one.

Ranked among the world’s most preeminent IP firms.

Play to your strengths. We founded Kelly IP in 2013 with professionals who spent many years practicing trademark law at one of the world’s largest IP firms. Recognizing trademark and copyright as more specialized fields of IP, our founders decided to develop a practice focused squarely on those areas, which requires creative thinking matched by a pragmatic ability to assess problems and understand the meaning of words, images, and symbols.

Guided by our persuasive, compelling way of articulating our clients’ vision and goals, we have cleared, prosecuted, registered and enforced thousands of marks. Our team of attorneys and litigators — each with their own specialized trademark talent — has successfully persuaded judge and jury as first-chair litigators in hundreds of federal court cases involving every imaginable issue. Over the years, we have filed and litigated cases in federal court and defended and opposed thousands of marks before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. It’s serious work and we seriously enjoy doing it.
