Erise IP is pleased to announce the addition of Karyn Kesselring as an associate in the firm’s Denver office. She focuses her practice on intellectual property litigation, particularly defensive matters, utilizing her varied background and experience to assist clients.

Kesselring earned her law degree in June from the University of Colorado Law School where she was a member of a number of organizations on campus including the Intellectual Property Association at the University of Colorado Law School, the Women’s Law Caucus and the Asian Pacific American Law Student Association. She was a Production Editor for the Colorado Law and Technology Journal, and prosecuted patents and drafted documentation for start-up businesses in CU Law’s Entrepreneurial Law Clinic.

“Karyn was outstanding as a summer associate with us last year, and we were all impressed with her personally and with her meaningful contributions to our cases,” said Abran Kean, a shareholder in Erise IP’s Denver office. “We are thrilled that she is on our team full-time, and Karyn will be an important asset to our firm, and to our clients, for years to come.”

Prior to law school, Kesselring was a quality specialist at a pharmaceutical company where her duties included auditing, reporting and remediation of documentation issues within manufacturing batch records and logs. She later worked at a medical device company, working on regulatory affairs and quality assurance.
