My name is Kevin L. Miller, and I am an intellectual property, patent, and technology law attorney focusing on innovative technologies and the legal principles impacting them. I take great pride in helping my clients evaluate and develop the best strategies to commercialize important advancements in technology, as well as apply legal strategies that will help protect both their organization and the consumer.
My deep understanding of technology impacts everything I do as an attorney. I spent a significant part of my career working as a software engineer, software architect, product designer, and technology executive and entrepreneur. As a former technologist, I understand the code behind a design, because I actually know how to design software, architect systems, and write code. This background gives me a unique ability to recognize, understand, and zero in on technology issues and risks, whether a client is interested in patenting their ideas or developing strategies to protect their business. Since I am a founder of technology startups in software, blockchain, and cloud services, as well as an inventor, I am well-versed in the challenges of launching technology products from the seeds of the initial idea all the way through to market placement.
I earned a J.D. (cum laude) from the University of Florida, Levin College of Law, and I have a B.A. in Philosophy and Computer Science. I also have an M.B.A. in Technology Management, and I am a Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer (MCSD), a globally recognized standard for software developers. I am a member of the Florida Bar and I am a Registered Patent Attorney with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
Prior to starting Labyrinth Law, I worked for Saliwanchik, Lloyd & Eisenschenk, an international patent law firm, where I focused on intellectual property in the areas of software, computing technologies, energy systems, and biotechnology.
Before becoming an attorney I worked for Microsoft as a principal technology specialist, where I consulted with Honeywell, Intel, American Express, and the University of Phoenix as an architect of numerous large technology implementations. I was also a research and development manager at Nationwide Insurance, and founded my own software company. I am the author of Professional NT Services, a classic reference text in the implementation of highly scalable multi-tiered systems. I have also authored several legal articles on topics related to cybersecurity, big data algorithms, and predictive crime technology.
I am committed to helping innovative start-ups and entrepreneurs succeed. That is why I am involved in local organizations that are working to help new entrepreneurs. I serve as a member of GAIN, a grassroots entrepreneur support organization in Florida which works to fuel innovation state-wide. On several occasions, I have participated as a judge at GAIN entrepreneurship competitions, helping start-ups to refine their business models. I have also served as a judge for the Cade Museum Prize, one of the largest cash prize competitions for innovation in the state of Florida for entrepreneurs, inventors, researchers, and early-stage companies. I am also a member of BioFlorida, an organization made up of over 5,500 life sciences organizations in Florida.
I am a member of the Business Law Section of the Florida Bar, where I am an active member of the Intellectual Property committee and the Computer Law and Technology committee. I am also a 2016-17 appointee to the Committee on Technology, an advisory board for Florida Bar technology policy.
I am involved with the Innovation Hub at the University of Florida, serving as founding director of a technology startup, Social Evidence, LLC. I am also a member of the Association for Computing Machinery, AIPLA, and the American Bar Association Science and Technology Law Section.
