Kelly IP Elects Firm’s Newest Partner

23-Jan-2019

Kelly IP is pleased to announce that Jason Joyal has been elected as the firm’s newest partner. Since joining the firm three years ago with substantial litigation experience, Jason has consistently distinguished himself as a creative, resourceful, and highly-effective IP advocate for Kelly IP’s elite clientele.

According to partner David Kelly, Jason’s partnership is well-earned and richly deserved: “From the start, it was apparent that Jason was and is a top-flight litigator with the imagination, creativity, and resiliency to successfully navigate the complex trademark, copyright, and unfair competition issues and cases Kelly IP routinely handles. Jason has been instrumental in numerous victories and has distinguished himself through his dedication, legal acumen, and savvy judgment. From running big cases to counseling clients, Jason consistently excels and has earned the trust of Kelly IP’s clients.”

Before joining Kelly IP, Jason gained significant intellectual property experience as an associate in both the Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. offices of an international law firm. He also served as a judicial law clerk to a U.S. District Judge in the Central District of California where he helped draft hundreds of judicial orders and published opinions, including many involving trademark and copyright issues.

A native of Southern California, Jason and his family relocated to the Washington, D.C. area in 2014. Jason enjoys rooting for his hometown Los Angeles Dodgers, but enjoys spending time with his wife and three boys even more.

Jason is the first attorney promoted to partner since Kelly IP’s original five partners founded the firm in 2013. Kelly IP congratulates Jason on this tremendous achievement.
