Kristine Calhoun


I am a senior paralegal in Schwabe’s Intellectual Property practice group with more than 20 years of trademark and copyright experience. Prior to joining Schwabe, I was a senior trademark paralegal at two other large national law firms.

I have a keen eye for efficiency and have been recognized throughout my career for my detail-oriented work style. I have substantial experience managing large U.S. and foreign trademark portfolios and handling trademark clearance, prosecution, maintenance, and enforcement. I work with business clients to obtain information and documents needed to facilitate U.S. and foreign trademark filings and collaborate with foreign counsel on trademark filings abroad.
