Laura A. Genovese

Laura grew up in Arlington, Virginia and relocated to the Philadelphia area to attend Bryn Mawr College and stayed following graduation. In 1983 she secured a position as the only paralegal in what was then a small intellectual property boutique. She continued this affiliation while attending graduate school on a teaching fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania, where she earned a Master of Arts in the History of Art. Her interest in trademarks and copyrights drove her to law school, and she graduated cum laude from Villanova University School of Law in 1989. In 2005 Laura joined Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP and remained with the intellectual property group when it separated to become Panitch Schwarze Belisario & Nadel, prior to cofounding K & G Law LLC.

Laura focuses her talents on providing trademark, copyright, trade dress, domain name, and internet advice, including prosecution and enforcement. She develops and oversees implementation of strategic plans for businesses. She also counsels and represents clients in litigation matters before the courts and inter partes proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. She has initiated and defended proceedings before domain name arbitration panels under the Uniform Domain-Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP).

Laura is an adjunct professor teaching copyright law at Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law.
