Kyle Yarberry

"Listen more, talk less, then do whatever it takes to achieve the client’s goals."

A practitioner with diverse professional experience, Kyle understands that clients often view IP law as a means to achieve commercial objectives.  With this in mind, Kyle works harder and smarter to achieve the best legal outcome consistent with the client’s business goals.

After leaving the financial industry to become an IP lawyer, Kyle gained valuable experience during law school by working for two firms with strong IP practice groups, and by prosecuting his own patent applications before the USPTO.  His experience includes drafting and prosecuting patent applications, supporting litigation and licensing matters, evaluating patent validity, and performing clearance searches.
