Kay Schwartz is a trademark protection lawyer who leads an experienced team of 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.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
