Having worked on both the legal and business fronts, I understand the challenges our clients can face. Being able to effectively negotiate on their behalf, while controlling or eliminating the “noise” that is part of the transactional process, is what drives the most rewarding aspects of my career as a lawyer.

Mr. Kay concentrates his practice in commercial and industrial real estate law, assisting clients in matters related to transactions throughout New Jersey and New York.  

Mr. Kay also practices in the area of corporate law.  He assists in the firm’s representation of clients in connection with the formation of corporate entities, joint ventures, intellectual property matters and various business transactions.  

Mr. Kay’s background includes trademark filings, sponsorship agreements, non-disclosure agreements, and production agreements.  He advises inventors, entrepreneurs, start-ups, and companies of all sizes on the protection of their assets and competitive advantage related to trademark and copyright, and assists them in adding value to their business by obtaining, maintaining, and enforcing their intellectual property rights. His work includes due diligence reviews regarding intellectual property issues in corporate transactions, and the enforcement of trademark rights.

Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Kay was responsible for negotiating complex technology transactions at a leading global bank. Through this experience, he has acquired strong negotiation and problem-solving skills that lead to the successful resolution of issues.  

Mr. Kay earned the ANSI-accredited Certified Information Privacy Professional/United States (CIPP/US) credential through the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).
