A WORD FROM OUR FOUNDER
Welcome and thank you for visiting our firm’s website. K&B was founded to be different from other law firms, and to be client-focused, first and foremost. Our main objective is and always has been to provide our clients with the highest quality service for reasonable cost, while providing maximum responsiveness and flexibility. After working in large general practice law firms and mid-size patent boutique law firms, and witnessing first hand our clients’ dissatisfaction with high costs but low quality, automatic annual increases in attorney hourly rates, and rigid rules and procedures governed by inflexible and slow-moving management committees, I decided to create a different type of firm that continuously builds long term strategic partner relationships with our clients with an emphasis on maximizing quality, responsiveness and cost-effectiveness. Due to our clients’ support and cooperation, our firm has enjoyed more than 20 years of successful service and growth, and we look forward to continuing to serve our clients for decades to come.
