Kevin Dawson concentrates his practice on trademark portfolio management, counseling clients on the risks associated with adoption of proposed marks, and evaluating where and if applications for domestic and/or international registration should be filed. Kevin also facilitates clients’ monetization of intellectual property assets by developing intellectual property portfolio strategies and negotiating licensing and IP sales agreements.
Kevin engages with a variety of global companies whose large portfolios require the use of B&B's international network of IP attorneys to ensure that those clients' portfolios are adequately and timely protected. Additionally, Kevin works closely with B&B's litigation group, assisting in oppositions, discovery, and enforcement matters.
Further to trademark counseling, clearance, and prosecution, Kevin assists artists to obtain copyrights and negotiate recording, licensing, and other agreements.Prior to joining B&B, Kevin was an associate at a large law firm in Indianapolis, where he represented intellectual property clients including software and technology companies, furniture manufacturers, fashion designers, and biotechnology companies ranging in size from startups to well-established large businesses.
