Kristen M. Geary is an associate attorney for Merchant & Gould’s Denver, Colorado, office. Dedicated to helping businesses protect their critical IP, her practice encompasses all aspects of patent law.

Supporting Businesses Through Patent Preparation, Prosecution & Litigation

Patent law is an ever-evolving field. Technology changes, as does the law, which means no two days are the same for a patent attorney. Kristen rises to the challenge, staying abreast of changes and putting her knowledge to work for her clients. This doesn’t mean that the patent field is one-size-fits-all, however. For Kristen, each client must find strategic solutions to fit their individual needs.

Kristen supports businesses as they venture through this evolving realm of law, from preparing secure patents to litigating on behalf of her client’s rights. By listening to your needs and goals, she’s able to develop custom-tailored legal solutions that provide the protection you need for the future.

Technology is a passion for Kristen. Although she primarily serves within the electrical group at Merchant & Gould, she enjoys working in a variety of fields from software to life sciences.

Experienced Patent Agent Turned IP Attorney

Not only does Kristen understand the legal side of the patent process, but she also knows the technical side. As a former patent agent for General Electric, she has experience in patent analysis, patent review and patent prosecution.

During law school, Kristen worked as a law clerk at a boutique IP firm in Colorado and participated in Merchant & Gould’s summer associate program. While working in each of these roles, Kristen earned the experience necessary to support you through the patent process.

Kristen received her J.D. from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law where she received a certificate in intellectual property law. She was also an Associate Editor of the Denver Law Review and the President of the Intellectual Property Law Society.

When Kristen isn’t supporting businesses and inventors, you’ll find her hiking, backpacking, or long-distance trail running. She also enjoys all the skiing that beautiful Colorado has to offer.
