My business had been through the trademark process before. We jumped in not knowing much about how this all works; costs to expect or challenges to plan for. The first time around wasn’t bad. But I sure didn’t end that process feeling like part of what I paid for was education, assurance and future support.

This second time around I ended the application process feeling so much more prepared, comfortable and informed. Gavin Law staff are all easy to work with, thorough, responsive and fun! Yes, fun! I would trust them with all Inspiring HR’s future Intellectual Property legal work. They invested the time, attention and energy for me to walk away feeling like we aligned with a partner who cares.
