About Scott

Learn Scott’s areas of practice.

Scott Hilton is a partner at Kunzler Bean & Adamson, PC. Scott helps clients of all sizes acquire patent, trademark, and copyright protection for their intellectual property and helps them enforce that intellectual property. Scott is a go-to for corporate counsel at large software and hardware companies that need help with patent or trademark prosecution, and also enjoys helping new startups build valuable patent and trademark portfolios.


Scott joined the firm in February of 2006 after studying electrical and computer engineering at Brigham Young University. He attended law school at the S.J. Quinney College of Law at the University of Utah. During law school, local patent attorneys selected Scott as the “Best Oralist” in the Giles Sutherland Rich Intellectual Property Moot Court competition between local law schools. Scott’s paper entitled, “Free and Open Source Software: How Free are the Nonliteral Elements?” was selected as a local winner in the Nathan Burkan Memorial Competition on copyright law. Scott finished his final year of law school at the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University, where he researched the subject of Internet regulation and worked to introduce a CyberSafety Constituency within ICANN, the Internet governing body.


Prior to joining the firm, Scott spent two years performing patent research and analysis on the 3GPP wireless standard for Coltera Intellectual Property. While at Coltera, Scott worked with and trained attorneys and engineers from many of the largest wireless companies in the world on intellectual property and technical matters. He later worked in-house for Fujifilm Microdisks, where he drafted core patent applications and screened patents in the disk drive industry in preparation for a new product release.

Excellent patent attorney
My wife and I have been working with Mr. Hilton for the past few years on a patent. Throughout the process, he has been extremely helpful in all aspects of obtaining our patent. I have and will continue to recommend him to anyone interested in obtaining a patient for themselves or through a company and will be sure to use him for any further legal needs we may have in the future.
