SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – Brooks Kushman attorneys Kyle Konz and Anna Robinson will be on an upcoming panel for the Intellectual Property and Entertainment Law Society at the University of Detroit Mercy (UDM) School of Law. This panel will be a time for UDM Law Students to ask questions about Patent, Trademark, Copyright, or Entertainment Law of practicing IP and Entertainment Law Attorneys.

Kyle has worked with a wide range of different clients including Fortune 100 Corporations to independent inventors. Kyle has written and prosecuted patent applications related to automotive and manufacturing. Kyle also manages trademark portfolios for several small businesses.

Kyle’s practical experience allows him to understand how a particular invention fits within the larger system enabling him to fully capture the invention in context with the client’s overall goals.
