Of Counsel

Judith Keene

You have a name, a product, or an idea … while these may be intangible, they represent your intellectual property – the unique character of your business. They are yours and yours alone. Like business owners the world over, you want to keep them that way.

A well-designed and well-researched intellectual property program helps to safeguard your names, products, business information, and ideas against infringement or copying by others. It can also save your business valuable time and money in the event a name or idea is already taken.

Judith has more than 35 years of experience practicing law in Colorado. She works to tailor an intellectual property protection program around your business’ unique needs – whether you are just starting a business, engaging employees or independent contractors, creating a new name for a product or service, developing or negotiating contracts, or preparing an advertising campaign. Her clients range from individuals to multi-national corporations.

Her areas of legal assistance include entity formation; trademark, copyright, and trade secret development, prosecution, protection, and management; drafting complex contracts (including government contracting and licensing); creating intellectual property standards, policies, and manuals; social media and Internet law; publicity and privacy; due diligence for mergers, acquisitions, and sales; grants agreements; and mediation services. Over her years in practice, Judith has worked in other areas including complex civil litigation, domestic and adoption issues, defamation, commercial and residential real estate, entity formation and maintenance, and more.

In her spare time, Judith enjoys pilates, her Maltese dog, and inventing new dessert recipes.
