Kelce Wilson is a registered U.S. patent attorney experienced in preparation and prosecution of patent applications, litigation, licensing, acquisitions, and invention harvesting.  His expertise also extends to the patent secrecy order process, privacy and data protection, and cybersecurity. Mr. Wilson has has represented clients both as outside counsel at BigLaw firms, and as in-house counsel for Blackberry. His prior experience includes working with advanced military technologies, such as advanced surveillance and tracking radars, radar jammers, and even stealth aircraft. Mr. Wilson has been honored with Reservist of the Year for solving multiple intractable math problems that had halted development of military programs or projects, and had remained unsolved by other teams of PhD researchers, until they came across his desk.

Mr. Wilson is a member of the Texas Bar and is admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas. He is also a registered patent attorney with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
