Kevin Swan

Kevin focuses 100% of his practice on intellectual property and technology transactions work, and has represented corporations, small businesses, government entities, and non-profit entities in intellectual property transactions. Kevin works with clients on complex licensing, development, distribution, and strategic agreements concerning software and hardware, technology patent licensing, multi-media and publishing, cloud computing services agreements for large and small companies (on both vendor and customer sides), and open source issues.

At Ragen Swan and at his previous firm, K&L Gates (formerly Preston Gates & Ellis), Kevin has worked since 2000 on significant projects for a Fortune 50 technology company, including semiconductor chip development and sourcing agreements with a variety of major vendors; launch agreements; complex software localization agreements with international vendors; publicity release issues for content production groups; outbound licensing of patents; and IP support for various acquisitions. Kevin's work for other large and small clients has included multiple cross-border Canadian transactions; hardware-related agreements for another major technology company; and intellectual property due diligence, drafting, and negotiations support for the purchase and sale of a number of large and small companies.

After law school, Kevin served as a law clerk to the late Hon. William L. Dwyer in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington. He started in private practice with a small Seattle firm in 1990, where he spent over nine years as an associate and then as a partner, working on complex commercial, employment, and personal injury litigation, and on a variety of transactional matters. He joined Preston Gates & Ellis in 2000, and became a partner at that firm in 2005.  He joined the Law Office of Amy Ragen PLLC in 2009 as Of Counsel, and became a member of the renamed Ragen Swan PLLC in 2010. Kevin graduated from the University of Washington Law School (J.D., 1988) and University of Oregon (B.A., with honors in International Business and International Studies, 1981).

Kevin served as president of the Federal Bar Association of the Western District of Washington (2002-2003), and Ninth Circuit Lawyer Representative (2003-2005).

Admitted to practice in Washington.
