‘They are very knowledgeable and experienced, they are quick to respond and deliver, they are available to discuss all matters and options, and they do not waste time or money. They are always cognizant of a start-up’s limited resources, and are aware of what’s important. They are very flexible, and can provide various services when needed.’

‘Svetlana, the senior partner and team leader I work with, besides being one of the most brilliant and professional people I have worked with, is also without a doubt an exceptional person in her dedication, generosity, diligence towards both the client and her team.’

‘The firm appears to be assisted by state-of-the-art information systems evident by the ability to provide us, almost in real time, with any information on our large IP portfolio that we need. I have experience of working also with other IP firms and find them to be above all competition.
