KJK is proud to announce that Scott Brown has joined our Columbus office as a Partner in our Corporate & Securities and Intellectual Property practice groups.

A valued asset to his client, Scott focuses his practice on corporate structuring, contract drafting and negotiation, trademark registration and protection, as well as crafting various service agreements, particularly in web-based and IP-centric industries. In addition to his corporate practice, Scott is highly experienced in all aspects of trademark law, including clearance of proposed marks, prosecution of marks with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and enforcement of trademark infringement claims.

As outside counsel, he has worked with a diverse array of clients, ranging from marketing agencies, hemp and marijuana businesses, short-term rental businesses, restaurants, and bars to influencers, photographers, authors, and musicians. Additionally, Scott is well-versed in copyright law, managing registration and handling infringement matters.

Raised in a creative and entrepreneurial family, Scott has worked in both his dad’s drum store and his grandparents’ chain of musical instrument stores.

Prior to joining KJK, Scott represented clients in both private practice and as in-house intellectual property counsel at a Fortune 100 company.
