Kacvinsky Daisak Bluni PLLC (KDB) announces the arrival of experienced New York mechanical arts patent lawyer, Giuseppe Molaro, as principal. Molaro’s hire represents the seventh lawyer joining KDB this year, continuing the national intellectual property law boutique’s upward trend of growth and significant talent acquisition.
Molaro joins KDB from New York-based Leviton Manufacturing, where he served as senior intellectual property counsel since 2010. He specializes in patent prosecution and due diligence in the mechanical arts. Serving as in-house counsel at Leviton manufacturing, Molaro led the development and implementation of IP strategies, and reviewed, negotiated and counseled clients with respect to supplier/subcontractor contracts and collaborative agreements, including inter-party developmental agreements, and non-disclosure agreements.
“Giuseppe is a substantial addition to our firm,” said Scott Bluni, KDB partner and chief operating officer. “His in-house transactional experience and background in mechanical arts is a valuable asset for our clients and a significant resource for the firm.”
Molaro was drawn to KDB because of its pool of highly experienced attorneys who are uniquely positioned to tend to their clients’ needs and requests.
“Having worked both in-house and at Big Law firms in previous positions, I’m excited to join KDB, where I can completely hone my expertise and focus on IP,” stated Molaro. “I am honored to work alongside such highly experienced attorneys, where I hope to contribute to the continued success that KDB is garnering.”
Prior to his time at Leviton Manufacturing, Molaro worked as an IP associate at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan, LLP, assistant IP counsel at Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation, and as an IP associate at Jones Day & Pennie & Edmonds, LLP. Molaro is licensed to practice in New York and by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. He received his J.D. from New York Law School with cum laude honors. Molaro received his Bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
