The Keys Law Firm, PLLC is an intellectual property (“IP”) law firm having a practice focused on patent, federal and state trademark, and copyright procurement; strategic planning for developing and maintaining an intellectual property portfolio; and patent, copyright, trademark, unfair competition, and trade secret litigation matters. The Keys Law Firm, PLLC was founded by James Keys, III, on core values such as integrity, diligence, commitment, and service with the objective to provide clients with specialized, high quality, IP boutique firm level service at more affordable price points due to my leveraging of 21st century business practices to reduce or eliminate traditional law firm overhead. A registered patent attorney since 2008, James’ experience in the patent process includes initial client consultations, the preparation and filing of an application, and the reviewing and responding to Patent Office communications, in writing and in interviews with patent examiners, to obtain patent allowance. He has prepared and/or prosecuted patent applications in the following technical areas: computer hardware, computer software, data storage, digital signal processing, electrical wiring, electromechanical devices, electromagnetic components, electronic circuitry, electronic commerce, mechanical devices, medical devices, position tracking devices, radio frequency identification technology, semiconductor sensors, signal transmission devices, and telecommunication devices. James also has experience in trademark copyright, and trade secret matters, including the strategic planning aspects of establishing protection as well as the application and registration process (when applicable). Notably, James has extensive experience in the enforcement aspects of IP rights. He has litigated patent, trademark, copyright infringement cases and trade secret and unfair competition causes of action from the side of both the IP right holder and the accused. This litigation experience in IP matters brings invaluable perspective to the planning, application, and prosecution process because it allows potential pitfalls which may be harmful in the event the patent is ever litigated to be to foreseen and avoided.
