Kushal embarked on a career in patent law where he prepared, processed, and prosecuted patent and trademark applications at a boutique firm in Tucson Arizona, Hayes Soloway PC. Working at a four lawyer firm side-by-side with the founding partner. With 40 years of patent prosecution experience, the founding partner was able to provide Malhotra a grass roots, soup to nuts understanding of the patent process: finding inventors, isolating invention ideas, assessing their value in the marketplace, drafting patents, advocating on their behalf with USPTO patent examiners, defending them against infringers, and etcetera. This process is ingrained in Malhotra’s style of patent counsel.
Several years into his career, Kushal went to Business School full-time in Madrid, Spain, at the IE School of Business. The experience provided him a much more nuanced and technical understanding of the fundamentals of business: finance, marketing, entrepreneurship, and strategy.
