Attorney Justin C. Mikowski
Justin is a partner in Mikowski & Leonard, LLC and has experience handling matters ranging from Intellectual Property law to consumer Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. He has helped clients win Chapter 93A claims (MA Consumer Protection), negotiated landlord/tenant disputes, settled breach of contract disputes, and personal injury cases. He has experience advising clients on corporate filings, protecting all areas of intellectual property (copyright, trademark, trade secret, trade dress, and patents), as well as drafting nondisclosure agreements, employment contracts, independent contractor agreements, and operation agreements. Justin’s particular interest area is business and intellectual property law, especially where the two areas meet in start-up law.
He received his Juris Doctor from Northeastern University School of Law. While at Northeastern University, Justin was the Publications Editor of the Northeastern University Law Journal. During his time at Northeastern he interned for in-house counsel for a large software company, a pharmaceutical company, and a technology-focused nonprofit. He was also a law clerk at a small civil and business litigation firm in downtown Boston.
Prior to attending law school, Justin received a Bachelors of Science Engineering from Tulane University in Computer Engineering. While at Tulane he worked as a hardware engineer designing printed circuit boards (PCBs) for an autonomous vehicle design company, Gray Matter Inc. in Metairie, Louisiana. Gray Matter Inc. was a technology start-up that began after Team Gray placed in the DARPA Grand Challenge. It was while at Gray Matter Inc. that Justin realized the importance of protecting intellectual property for young start-up companies and established businesses alike. Additionally, he worked with a team of researchers at Stennis Space Center in Mississippi on NASA’s integrated intelligent health management system, developing the graphical user interface and some small scale testing logic.
