What You May Like to Know About Me
Kathleen Kuznicki is a patent attorney with The Lynch Law Group, a full service commercial law firm located in Cranberry Township, PA. The Lynch Law Group focuses on providing legal services to small and mid-sized business, giving them top-tier quality legal work without the large firm price structure.
Kathleen is a former scientist with a Ph.D. in the Life Sciences now working with businesses to protect some of their most valuable assets, their intellectual property. She provides an array of services covering trademark, copyright and patent issues that are essential to business owners. Business owners are always faced with challenges to overcome when trying to grow their business and minimizing their risk. The Lynch Law Group understands these challenges, and as business advisors, they develop and protect all aspects of business. One crucial way to grow and safeguard a business is by maximizing the use of intellectual property assets. Intellectual property assets give businesses an edge over their competition, create new sources of revenue, and enhance the value of their business. If intellectual property assets are not protected, there is a risk of losing revenue and market exclusivity.
Including her experience at The Lynch Law Group and her experience with solo practitioners, Kathleen has worked on patent matters in a number of technical fields including medical devices, metallurgical compositions, software, and manufactured articles, expanding from her scientific background in the Life Sciences. She works closely with clients to file and prosecute patent applications and to perform patentability, landscape or freedom to operate analyses. She helps businesses protect the good will in their brand with trademark registration and aggressive defense of that registration. She also advises clients that are being sued or being threatened with an infringement suit about the legal strategies that can be used for their defense. Other areas of Kathleen’s legal services include: copyright registration, drafting non-disclosure and licensing agreements, and pursing infringers.
Professional Affiliations include: the Pittsburgh Intellectual Property Law Association, Toastmaster’s International, Pittsburgh Women’s Mastermind, and the Pittsburgh Venture Capital Association. Kathleen is also a legal expert with Project Olympus at Carnegie Mellon University.
