Kay Schwartz is a trademark protection lawyer who leads an experienced team of Foley Gardere lawyers in representing emerging, growing and established companies in their trademark protection, clearance, protection and registration around the world. On top of the latest issues businesses face, from branding, typosquatting, cybersquatting and theft, to international security issues, Kay and her team help clients develop sound intellectual property and business strategies, take advantage of opportunities, and address issues in spite of the laws and jurisdictions not keeping pace.
Her practice also involves all phases of IP litigation, including representing clients in administrative proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, as well as under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. Her expertise extends to IP business transactions, such as acquiring, transferring and licensing of intellectual property assets, including patents, copyrights and domain names.
Kay collaborates with a network of foreign associates in locations as far-reaching as Macedonia, Serbia, United Arab Emirates, the European Union, Israel, Paraguay, Jamaica and Bermuda. Clients admire her passion and devotion to this work, and they appreciate that they can reach her around the clock and from any time-zone. Kay and her team offer clients 24/7 access to their intellectual property portfolios – an Internet portal where they can check on the status of their filings and get real-time answers to their questions, day or night.
Kay represents clients across a wide range of industries, including academia, alarm and security, building products, computer software, electronics, eyewear, hotel, medical devices/health care, oil and gas, powersport, restaurants, retail, technology and telecommunications.
