What do our clients say?
“I have worked closely with Sharon Givoni on numerous trade mark issues relating to my nutrient bar business, Slim Secrets. I have found Sharon to be THE most approachable lawyer I have dealt with to date and her fees are very reasonable. Most importantly, the quality of the firm’s work is having to deal with so many unknowns in the world of food legislation, labelling and trade marks, Sharon’s firm has been a fantastic help for me!”

“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. The real difference I found when I spoke to this firm was their ability to go a step further and translate our legal predicament into what it meant commercially for our business. We now have a solid strategy in place thanks to Sharon Givoni and her team. When you speak to Sharon it will be quickly evident that she is very passionate about what she does which reflects in the quality of her work. Give her a call and have a conversation around your IP, you won’t regret it!”

“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 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.”

“Copyright law is such a difficult thing to process, when one of my customers let me know that there was a similar product to mine being sold, it was soul crushing. When I had heard Sharon talk at a training day and I had purchased her book ‘Owning it’, I didn’t hesitate to contact Sharon. She instantly got back to me and made me feel that my case was worth fighting for. Her team go above and beyond to help, there is no question you cannot ask, they thoroughly do their research which has been proven on multiple occasions where I have had problems arise, they present multiple solutions or options for how the problem can be handled, they speak in ‘easy’ to understand language so that you can make practical informed decisions. I cannot recommend their services enough and I wouldn’t hesitate to use them in the future, they are a pleasure to work with.”
