If you're serious about protecting your brand and business, we can help. Securing your U.S. federal trademark for your trade name, logo, or slogan ensures you have the right to use, and others can't misuse, the intellectual property you've invested in creating and marketing.



Keeping up with changing legal requirements is a full time job. Whether you need assistance with industry-specific privacy policies, corporate policies, employee training, or privacy and legal compliance consulting, we have your back.



You need ongoing contract review, dispute resolution, and legal advice from an attorney familiar with your business and industry, but you don’t yet need full-time or in-house counsel? Our Outsourced GC services assist you in bridging the gap and affording you the counsel you need.

Rian has helped my business on multiple occasions and each time I'm impressed on how thorough and targeted she is. Her document deliverables are always comprehensive without being bloated, and I appreciate that. She is always friendly and truly interested in understanding the problem I'm trying to solve.

Working with Rian was a breeze. She's able to take "legal mumbo jumbo" and translate it into actionable information. I appreciated her assistance in registering a trademark for my business and wouldn't hesitate to consult with/hire her again for help with my business. Thanks, Rian!

I'm beyond grateful to Rian Kinney of The Kinney Firm for navigating the incredibly complicated UDRP dispute process to successfully secure a domain name that illegally contained our trademark and was being used to spoof the website. I couldn't be happier with the entire process, Rian's professionalism, responsiveness, communication throughout, and the perfectly reasonable flat-fee. What a relief to know that Rian always has our back!

Rian is a knowledgeable lawyer, but beyond that, she is a compassionate person focused on fairness and equity. In addition, she is a technology-driven, forward-thinking attorney who understood my software business and advised us effectively.
