Kent is an attorney with King & Spalding where he is member of the firm’s Intellectual Property practice group. He joined the firm in 2013 directly after graduating from Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law in Dallas, Texas. Kent’s practice focuses on patent litigation as well as corporate mergers and acquisitions. He is also active in the Georgia bar, serving on the IP Section Patent Subcommittee. Prior to attending law school, Kent worked for more than 20 years as an engineer in the telecom industry where he designed wireless telecom systems for Nortel and Ericsson and served at the forefront of the digital cellular revolution, having helped introduce the first 3G mobile phone systems in Europe and the U.S.
Kent picked up his first camera in 1981, a Minolta 35mm Hi-Matic AF2 and fell in love instantly. Several cameras and a few million photos later, he still actively pursues his first love. Although the iPhone has mostly replaced the camera, and the dark room has given way to Photoshop, the process of seeing an image and attempting to capture that moment in time remains the same.
