Harold K. Kyle
Attorney At Law
Hal Kyle, founder of the law firm Kyle & Associates in Ventura, California has been practicing law for over 35 years, and primarily focuses his practice on Intellectual Property Law, specializing in U.S. and foreign trademark prosecution, copyright prosecution, license agreements and the enforcement of intellectual property rights.
Hal gained his broad experience in intellectual property during his years as Corporate Counsel for Max Factor & Co. and Applause Inc., two companies with demanding intellectual property needs and large portfolios of trademarks and license agreements, including agreements with Disney, Sesame Street, Warner Bros., and LucasFilm properties, as well as numerous sublicense agreements for The California Raisins™ and the Smurfs®.
In 1998, after nearly 20 years as in-house counsel, Hal opened Kyle & Associates. His years as inside counsel made him keenly aware of the intellectual property issues that face businesses of all sizes and types and more importantly he became a specialist in this challenging area of the law. Hal wanted to establish a firm that would provide clients with exceptional personal service and consistent support.
Hal is also a certified mediator and arbitrator. Drawing from his experience as a mediator, Hal works closely with clients to quickly and forcefully address and respond to infringement matters in a straightforward manner to stop such infringements before they become larger issues and without taxing a client’s budget. Hal’s excellent negotiation skills have resulted in the resolution of hundreds of cases without the need for litigation.
