A skilled negotiator, Kristin has negotiated and drafted license agreements and IP provisions in asset purchase agreements, employment agreements, and other commercial contracts, and has helped guide clients successfully through complex trademark, copyright, and Internet disputes. She has conducted IP due diligence on trademark, copyright, and domain name issues in mergers and acquisitions.
