As an intellectual property attorney, Pete Rosene learns something new every day. In this very unique area of the law, every new client and case offers something new and interesting. Pete’s legal and academic curiosity drives him to pursue further depths of knowledge with each and every legal puzzle he works to solve, building off of an already extensive basis of knowledge of the often esoteric world of intellectual property law. Pete’s clients appreciate his creativity, attention to detail, and ability to explain complex and sophisticated legal concepts in language anyone can understand. His writing, researching, and problem-solving skills allow him to help his clients register and protect their intellectual properties as well as achieve the best outcome available in cases where litigation becomes necessary.

Pete’s law practice is based in Louisville, Kentucky, but takes him all across the country. Every day, he assists clients in protecting their ideas and works, whether through administrative matters such as contract, assignment, and license drafting; trademark registration at state and local levels and with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO); or copyright registration with the U.S. Copyright Office, or through litigation, including trademark cancellations and oppositions with the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board; copyright, trademark, and patent infringement litigation (on behalf of plaintiffs and defendants) in federal courts; right of publicity litigation; appellate court litigation; and business and corporate tort litigation. Regardless of the type of matter at hand, Pete is ready to help his clients navigate and find success in the challenging world of intellectual property law.

Pete currently serves as the Intellectual Property Section Chair of the Louisville Bar Association. In his free time, he enjoys watching movies and attending concerts, as well as going hiking and camping.
