Innovative, insightful and focused on all aspects of intellectual property law and business, KDB lawyers have been in their clients’ shoes – literally. As former in-house counsel, they have overcome similar challenges and have worked alongside outside counsel to create inspired solutions. They know the dynamics and demands of being in-house, and how best to advance an enterprise’s business objectives while navigating complex legal landscapes. This makes KDB a truly unique legal platform.
A third of KDB’s lawyers have held senior in-house positions, including firm name principals John Kacvinsky (Intel), Dan Daisak (Tyco), Scott Bluni (Boston Scientific), and senior principal Jeffrey Chamberlain (Newport News Shipbuilding). This in-house experience makes KDB a unique firm that understands our clients’ industries, and gives KDB the ability to provide insightful, business-minded counseling. What’s more, the majority of KDB lawyers hold advanced degrees in their respective industries, further augmenting their position as trusted IP and business advisers.
Originally founded in 2003 by Kacvinsky, KDB has grown to a firm of over 30 attorneys with nationwide presence, in multiple industries, ranging from high technology to medical devices to financial services. KDB has built a select and targeted league of lawyers and an elite client roster. Its solution-centered approach and substantial experience where IP, technology and business intersect yields first-rate work and strategic counseling.
KDB’s model is deliberate. Talent-driven, the firm attracts and invests in seasoned IP practitioners from throughout the country who roll-up their sleeves, providing clients with their real-life know-how and valuable perspectives from decades of frontline experience.
In addition to former in-house counsel, KDB includes former U.S. patent office and Big Law attorneys among its ranks, providing a deeper and more relevant understanding of IP, commerce and technology issues that make the firm an indispensable business partner.
A solid and highly experienced partnership, deliberate flexibility, and seamless technology embody the Law Firm 2.0 model that is KDB and ensures the continual investment in talent to best represent clients in all IP needs. Fueling the high caliber of IP counsel, KDB’s culture encourages the attraction and retention of the best lawyers while fostering innovation and collaboration, providing lawyers the latitude to practice from where they live or from one of the firm’s five U.S. offices.
