Kathryn H. Britton, Attorney At Law

Kathryn H. Britton, Attorney At Law

I provide legal services to small and medium sized businesses without an in-house attorney that need affordable legal guidance using a cost effective, practical, business minded approach.

Firm Overview

With over thirty years of legal and business experience and using the skills that I have obtained working for companies in Silicon Valley and the Monterey Bay area, I am able to provide prompt, cost effective legal services on an as needed basis.

As examples, I have counseled companies and drafted and negotiated agreements related to the following:

Marketing and advertising; Internet based products or services; Purchase, sale, or distribution of products, Development and licensing of software and hardware; Consulting or other services; Sales of healthcare related products or services; Development and management of company contracts and document systems; Protection of company secrets and intellectual property; Compliance with local, state, or federal regulations and requirements; and Land use and conservation; Financial services; and Trademarks.

I can handle most legal issues that typically arise in a company. For some matters that required specialization such as patent or trademark prosecution, securities, wage and hour issues, or litigation, I can identify other qualified attorneys and manage the relationship with them to ensure that they provide your company with quality, cost effective legal services.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I have extensive experience with business related matters and intellectual property including licensing. I also have a personal interest in biology, technology, agriculture, conservation, and local land use matters.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others?

In my work in small, medium, and large companies, I have always been required to provide prompt, business sensitive solutions that also keep a company's customers and suppliers happy. Since I have worked both for companies selling products or services and those acquiring products or services, I have a good understanding of the issues and requirements of each side of a transaction. As a result, in any negotiation I can suggest reasonable alternatives that are acceptable to all parties to a transaction.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Often law firms do not have attorneys available that have actually worked extensively in the role of in-house attorney and who are available to advise on ongoing issues at rates that are cost effective. I am also experienced in development and drafting standard document systems for the sale or acquisition of products or services that are are easy to use and and negotiate.
