Grolle, Erin E.

Account Coordinator, Kirvin Doak Communications

Erin Grolle works with gaming, entertainment and hospitality clients in acquiring, protecting and enforcing intellectual property assets with an emphasis on trademarks, domain names, copyrights and rights of publicity. 

Erin is skilled in managing large-scale trademark portfolios and advises clients at every stage of brand development. Her comprehensive trademark management begins by conducting clearance searches to evaluate the availability and registrability of new marks and includes filing domestic and international registrations, and when necessary, representing clients before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB). With concentrated knowledge in the emerging field of cyber law, Erin is also at the forefront of brand protection and enforcement on the Internet and regularly assists clients in recovering infringing domain names through various legal and administrative proceedings.

Erin regularly provides intellectual property counsel in connection with major corporate transactions and drafts complex purchase and license agreements.  She also has unique experience drafting and negotiating entertainment contracts with high-profile performers for gaming and hospitality clients.

Erin prioritizes the Las Vegas community both personally and in her practice. Building on her previous experience managing high-profile brands as a public relations professional, she is an integral part of the team protecting the famous “What Happens Here, Stays Here” trademark for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. Erin also provides pro bono legal work to several Las Vegas nonprofit organizations, including the Neon Museum and The Liberace Foundation for the Creative and Performing Arts. At the firm, she serves on the Professional Development and Summer Associate Committees.
