What Savva's clients say:
LegalEdge were brilliant from start to finish in helping us to develop a proper brand strategy and implementing it. They then were instrumental in overcoming the objection to our US trade mark registration. Savva’s expert guidance and help was undoubtedly the reason behind us successfully getting our trade marks registered. He provided both strategic and practical, straightforward advice with a fixed fee that minimised hassle and stress.
Savva has been our legal counsel for over 4 years, and has always provided us with practical legal advice and is a "one-stop-shop" for multiple issues that arise in our company, from routine matters to complex enterprise level software agreements, corporate restructuring, and securing new IP, including patents. It would be very difficult to find another legal adviser with the same level of expertise and knowledge in the technology sector.
We consider Savva to be an invaluable member of our team. His work is always top-notch, and we feel confident in his expertise, suggestions, and overall input. We notice that he is extremely responsive, and goes out of his way to accommodate his services to our requirements and requests. He comes across as having our best interests at heart, which means we always feel like he is on our side. One defining trait Savva shows is creativity coupled with knowledge. In other words, he never shies away from finding solutions to problems, We recommend him to anyone looking for legal advice, to establish a legal team, or even, to enhance an already existing one.
LegalEdge were excellent in helping us file our trade mark in the US based on our EU registration. Their trade mark search and strategic advice minimised the risk of objections and our mark is on track to be registered with minimal hassle. I definitely recommend their trade mark filing service.
