Liz Sproston provided excellent advice for registering a trademark for my client’s new product.  I liked her practical approach to the issues, and she quickly and efficiently applied for the trademark on my client’s behalf.” Caroline Walker, Marketing Consultant

As owner of AMR Consulting, a new company looking for qualified professional and cost-effective legal support, I engaged Liz Sproston to carry out two assignments.  Liz conducted a trademark search and then an application for my company logo, and also prepared a copyright assignment document.  My customer experience was positive.  The firm delivered on time and within budget, keeping me closely informed along the way.  My business received exactly the support it needed, with no hassle and no nasty surprises.  From my perspective the firm, through Liz Sproston, delivered exactly what it said on the tin.” Andy M Reeve, Owner and Consultant, AMR Consulting Limited
