Ken Parker's practice focuses on intellectual property, transactions, entity formation, business permitting, resolution of business disputes, and general business matters.
Ken’s record of getting results for Parker Keough clients includes winning a $671 thousand judgment in a trade secrets dispute, negotiating an appeal settlement of $250,000 more than our client won at trial, and settling a case in which our client was sued for millions of dollars for no money. Ken has also negotiated and drafted agreements for major intellectual property acquisitions and licenses and helped secure dozens of trademark and copyright registrations.
Ken attended Northeastern University School of Law where he served as Publications Editor of the Northeastern University Law Journal, worked as a research assistant for four professors and a teaching assistant for one, was a national semi-finalist in the Pace Environmental Moot Court Competition, and won the 2012 "Law Student Program of the Year Award" of the American Bar Association's Environment, Energy Natural Resources Committee for a project he led preparing a compliance report for the Conservation Law Foundation.
Ken's legal education also included four full-time legal internships, which afforded him the opportunity to train under some of Boston's leading attorneys in both the public and private sectors.
Ken's law firm experience includes work for two of Boston's leading intellectual property firms, Wolf, Greenfield & Sacks and GTC Law Group. At Wolf Greenfield, Ken worked in the firm's litigation department where he trained under Michael Albert and Mike Rader. At GTC, Ken was mentored by Tom Hemnes, Sayoko Blodgett-Ford, Rick Olin, and Brent Bliven, whom he assisted with a number of acquisitions, patent applications, and corporate governance-related matters.
Ken's government experience includes serving in the Health Care Fraud Unit of the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Massachusetts where he worked on complex white collar criminal prosecutions under the tutelage of several Assistant U.S. Attorneys, as well as in the Enforcement Division of the Securities and Exchange Commission's Boston Regional Office where he worked under a number of enforcement lawyers, researching legal issues for securities fraud investigations.
During law school, Ken also worked as a student attorney representing pro bono clients in unemployment appeals for the Northeastern Law Clinics.
Prior to law school, Ken worked in leadership roles in the publishing industry and served as a member of the Newton Board of Aldermen, where he developed his passion for solving problems.
In his spare time, Ken enjoys backpacking, chess, and fencing.
