Corporate Commercial and IP.

Position

Partner

Career

Paralegal Zeiner & Zeiner (Vienna, Austria) 2002; trained at Warners Solicitors, qualified 2004 and partner from 2013.

Kevin leads the Corporate Commercial and IP team. He manages clients through the development stage and the lifespan of their businesses, from start-up (or acquisition) through to exit. Although Kevin’s practice has a focus on IP and IT, his practice is diverse and is both transactional and advisory. It includes formations, corporate finance and advisory; mergers and acquisitions; advising on commercial contracts (often cross-border) from procurement to the renegotiation and dispute/resolution stages (where required); and advising on the development, protection and exploitation of intellectual property rights. On the contentious side, Kevin regularly advises on contractual, shareholder/owner and intellectual property disputes (particularly copyright, trade marks and passing off, and the misuse of confidential information on the IP side).
