Kelsey Weir Joins Klemchuk Kubasta LLP
Firm Hires Senior Associate for IP Law Practice
Klemchuk Kubasta LLP (KK LLP), a leading full-service intellectual property (IP) law firm, announces the addition of Kelsey M. Weir as a senior associate in their North Texas law practice.
An experienced litigator, Weir has represented clients on a variety of legal matters including contract and business disputes, securities litigation, internal investigations, and intellectual property issues in both state and federal courts. She is particularly skilled in managing the electronic discovery process, working with expert witnesses, and taking a case to trial.
“Since KK LLP was established, the competitive business climate has generated an unprecedented amount of IP-related work,” said Kelly Kubasta, the firm’s co-founder and senior partner. “Kelsey’s extensive experience in complex commercial litigation combined with her background in IP law makes her an excellent addition to the practice.”
Weir was previously a member of a legal team that achieved a complete defense victory, which prevented a plaintiff from collecting a $40 million damage claim following a two-week trial in Dallas. She also worked with a group of attorneys on a successful pre-trial settlement in a patent-related fraud action, which was later listed as one of the top ten intellectual property settlements of 2009.
“Kelsey is a respected and highly regarded trial lawyer who brings added muscle to our expanding IP practice,” added Darin Klemchuk, co-founder and managing partner. “Klemchuk Kubasta has a strong team of attorneys specialized in providing better service at a better value to our clients, and we are confident that Kelsey’s expertise will help us achieve that goal.”
Weir practiced law at national and international law firms prior to joining KK LLP. An alumnus of Duke University, she graduated cum laude with a Juris Doctor degree. She also obtained a Bachelor of Science in Economics from Duke, and was named the Richard K. Lublin Pre-Law Award recipient.
An active volunteer within the Dallas community, Weir is a member of several civic groups including the Junior League of Dallas.
