Kimberly A. Harchuck
Kimberly A. Harchuck is an associate attorney at Holihan Law. She received her Political Science degree from Mount Union College in 2004. Kimberly went on to graduate with her J.D. from Barry University School of Law in 2008. While in law school, she was chosen by Barry's staff to be a faculty research assistant, and contributed to several faculty-authored law review articles. Additionally, excerpts from her law school dissertation, "The Theft of Black Music: A Look Into a Cultural Dynamic, Built or Destroyed by Our Nation's Copyright Laws" were published by Scene Magazine.
Upon completing her J.D., Kimberly was recruited by the University of Akron School of Law to pursue a postgraduate LL.M. degree in intellectual property at its nationally-ranked Center for Intellectual Property Law & Technology. While obtaining her Master of Laws, Kimberly’s article, “The Performance Rights Act of 2009: The Saving Grace of the Recording Industry or a Simple Case of Displaced Aggression?” was solicited by members of Congress and used by the House Judiciary Committee in legislative efforts concerning federal copyright policy. Kimberly’s LL.M. thesis, “Fashion Design Protection: The Eternal Plight of the Soft Sculpture”, was published in the school’s Intellectual Property Journal, and has since been reprinted by several academic periodicals.
Kimberly began her legal career working in-house as an IP Licensing Rights Coordinator for NPR and PBS. She continued her intellectual property practice by joining an entertainment law firm, where she specialized in trademark and copyright procurement, and various branding services. Most recently, while working as a senior associate for an Orlando firm, her practice focused on the web-based operations, business matters, data security, global marketing liability, and intellectual property issues of online service entities. During this time, she developed her skills in the area of Internet and technology law by presenting lectures, participating in legal panels, publishing articles, and teaching CLE courses.
Kimberly is a member of the Florida Bar Business Law and Entertainment, Arts, & Sports Law Sections, the American Bar Association Intellectual Property Section and Entertainment & Sports Industries Forum, the Orange County Bar Association Young Lawyers Section, and the Central Florida Association for Women Lawyers.
She is admitted to practice before the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida and all Florida state courts.
