recent experience

  • Deep Diving, Deep Thinking

    Our client was involved in a trade mark opposition and Elise completed extensive research into the client’s brand, delving deep into their trade mark history. Through meticulous examination, Elise unearthed evidence of their trademark usage dating back to the mid-1980s. This discovery not only provided valuable insights into the brand’s heritage but also laid the foundation for strategic decision-making and brand development moving forward. It’s a testament to the importance of thorough investigation and attention to detail in understanding and leveraging a brand’s legacy.
