Lawrence T. Kass

Lawrence “Larry” Kass focuses his practice on all aspects of Intellectual Property, including patent and trade secret litigation, corporate finance and technology transactions, client counseling and patent prosecution. In his capacity as a litigator and a transactional attorney, Larry has provided counsel and guidance to clients in a number of industries and technologies, such as chemical, biopharma, energy, semiconductor and flat panel manufacturing and software.

As a result of Larry’s involvement in high-profile cases and trials, major corporations, especially those in the biopharma industry, continually rely on his insight and experience during pre-suit investigations and related matters.

Larry has also been instrumental in a range of corporate, finance and technology transactions, drafting and negotiating IP provisions of merger and acquisition, credit, joint venture, security and collateral agreements as well as other corporate and finance documents and multi-party licenses for multibillion dollar projects. Additionally, Larry has led IP due diligence in corporate and finance transactions and has handled IP aspects of bankruptcies, providing transactional and litigation support for both the creditor and debtor sides.

Early in his legal career, Larry served as Judicial Clerk to the Honorable Alvin A. Schall, Circuit Judge at the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

Prior to joining Buchanan, Larry was a partner at the New York headquarters of an international law firm. In addition to the experience mentioned above, he also supervised that firm’s patent prosecution docket. Before becoming an attorney, Larry worked as a research scientist and development engineer at Union Carbide, developing processes for efficient refining, cleaner fuels and lower automobile emissions and other innovations, several of which have received patents.

Larry’s articles have been published in the National Law Journal, the New York Law Journal, the American Intellectual Property Law Association Quarterly Journal, the BNA Patent, Trademark and Copyright Journal, Law360 and the Pace Law Review. A frequent lecturer and speaker, Larry also holds leadership positions in several IP bar associations.
