What clients have said:
"I have been working with Sharon over the last couple of months and it goes without saying that Sharon and her team are experts in Intellectual Property (IP) Law. When I sought legal advice around a trade mark dispute I spoke to several IP Lawyers who were all experts in IP law as well.
"I have been working with Sharon and her team for the past year professionally to ensure the business’ brands are protected under trade mark laws. Sharon has been such a pleasure to work with – she’s insightful, an expert in her field, quick to turn around last minute projects and takes time out of her busy schedule to explain all requirements to her client’s in detail. Surrounded by her professional legal team, Sharon has offered me holistic trade mark advice and given Pharmacy Alliance confidence in our brand names globally. On a personal note, Sharon has been a great advisor to me and we have built a lovely friendship through all our work – something which is often hard to do with external suppliers.
"Sharon provides the most prompt and personal IP advise and service. Her thoughtfulness and attention to details enabled our company to be fully protected for its intellectual integrity."
"I have worked closely with Sharon Givoni on numerous trade mark issues relating to my nutrient bar business, Slim Secrets. In that time I have found Sharon to be THE most approachable lawyer I have dealt with. Her fees are reasonable and, most importantly, the quality of her work is thorough. Sharon evidentially loves what she does and this is reflected in the quality of her work. Having to deal with so many unknowns in the world of food legislation, labelling and trade marks, Sharon has been a fantastic help for me!"
"Sharon Givoni assisted us with the protection of our IP and registration of trade marks. She was a pleasure to deal with, working collaboratively with our marketing team and handling all requests promptly and effectively. As a result, we now have the security of ownership of a new suite of trade marks, with the process being completed easily and quickly. I would use Sharon again in the future and have no hesitation in recommending her to others. "
"Sharon Givoni has been fundamental in protecting the cornerstone of our business - the “Trampoline” brand. She has taken the time to explain the pros and cons of every action associated primarily with intellectual property and trade mark matters and has provided sound and clear advice in a timely manner."
"Dear Sharon, I would like to take this opportunity to thank for your prompt and professional service in registering our trade mark 'Driving Force'. In this world of very average service and care provided to clients by many service providers, your expertise in the area of trade marks, your ability to convert 'legalese' to English and your follow through was second to none. All this great service at very reasonable rates. To top it all off, you were great to deal with. I thoroughly recommend your services to anyone looking for trade mark advice and support. Wishing you every success!"
"Hi Sharon, Thanks for your help in obtaining our USA trade marks to allow us to export The Uncorked Cellar to the USA. Your contacts with the USA lawyers gave us a cost effective path to get specific intellectual property advice on what was required for the USA market, and your notes from the conference call you arranged with them really helped ensure we recalled all of the required detail. You quick responses to my email questions helps you stand out from the crowd. It is great to see another business applying the same levels of customer support that we apply to ourselves."
Midway through our brand development Sharon highlighted a potential issue with our packaging design that we had not thought of. Once she identified the issue she then took ownership for helping us resolve it, providing us with easily understandable advice in a timely manner. Sharon always did what she said she was going to do, so much so, that sometimes it was hard keeping up with the pace of her quick turnaround times. The logo in question is quite distinctive and whilst we knew it was essential to our brand success it did not occur to us to trade mark it until Sharon pointed it out. By protecting our logo as a trade mark, we have not only protected our brand from imitators but increased its value as well. Thank you Sharon."
"Thank you for your professional and prompt attention to handling of our trade mark application. In particular, we are very grateful for your straightforward advice which allowed us to understand the stages involved in overcoming the barriers and securing our trade mark. We achieved all this within our budget and were billed as quoted and with no hidden fees. I would not hesitate to recommend you to any business associate."
As a business owner, establishing a safe path for my business and protecting what I have has been a real education and journey. What better guide could I have found in Sharon Givoni. Her quiet, plain, easy, to understand and yet astute counsel, sense of partnership and above all a commitment to giving more than just value - truly makes her stand out as a service professional."
"Sharon Givoni has provided Cristina Re Designs with professional and timely advice on IP strategy and trade marking. Sharon has been both supportive and responsive to our needs in such a way that we feel we have the benefit of an in-house lawyer.
"I would like to say I was very pleased with the fact that Givoni Consulting understood the nature of my business from the word go. Whilst I have a relatively new business, I was particularly happy with the fact that she did not charge me an arm and a leg like some other legal firms I've dealt with in the past. We felt confident in her advice and Sharon was always prompt in getting back to me. Thank you!"
"Sharon organised some IP work for me and was both professional and friendly
in my dealings with her. She was easily contactable and always promptly
"When I sought legal advice in relation to a trade mark dispute that involved a multinational company, I contacted several IP lawyers. Here I was, a sole trader, just starting out with a large multinational corporation opposing my trade mark. The IP lawyers I spoke to either did not want to take my case as they did not want to go against such a large organisation or just did not bother to follow up after my initial inquiry. Sharon Givoni, on the other hand, was immediately responsive, displayed a high degree of professionalism and gave me sound advice. Sharon was always on top of things, focussed on cost effective and practical solutions and kept me-up to-date on a regular basis. As a result of her work, we came to a fast resolution and I was happy with the result. I am certainly glad I had Sharon on my side."
