Rebranded Grimes LLC Opens Naples, Florida Office

The internationally renowned intellectual property law firm founded by Charles (“Chuck”) Grimes in 1980 that has operated under multiple names during its history – initially Kontler & Grimes, LLP and most recently Grimes & Battersby, LLC – is pleased to announce that it has:

  • Opened a Naples, Florida office;


  • Expanded its professional service offerings by entering into a new and exciting relationship with Miami, Florida based law firm Arrastia, Capote & Phang, LLP; and


  • Rebranded itself under the name “Grimes LLC”.

The decision to rename the firm “Grimes LLC” stems from the partners’ desire to acknowledge  that the firm’s thirty three years of unparalleled excellence has occurred under Chuck’s direction and stewardship as the firm’s managing partner.
The “Grimes” name is synonymous with clarity of vision, strength of leadership, sound guidance and direction, wise counsel and effective advocacy.   Most of all, the “Grimes” name signifies dedicated client service by a uniquely skilled and highly regarded team of legal professionals. 
As for the new Naples, Florida office and the relationship with Arrastia, Capote & Phang, LLP, Chuck explains: “Leading the firm into new markets and creating vibrant alliances is being proactive and consistent with a results oriented approach – something that the Grimes team has successfully employed in representing our clients.  Our client service philosophy is still very much based on using our extensive experience to deliver ‘value added’ benefits to our clients.”
In addition, the firm is also pleased to announce that, in recognition of Chuck’s scholarly contributions to the legal profession, the Ave Maria School of Law has asked Chuck to join the law school’s faculty.  Accordingly, commencing this Fall 2013, Chuck will join the law school faculty as an adjunct professor teaching intellectual property law (the first course Chuck will teach will be Copyright Law).
Grimes LLC’s attorneys are leading members of the intellectual property legal profession, both in the United States and worldwide.  Grimes LLC is a full service law firm whose members have extensive experience in all phases of intellectual property rights procurement, licensing and enforcement.
