Previous Law Firms:
We approached gunnercooke to deliver a review of our licensing contracts and IP ownership position. I knew this was important and expected it to be a bit like insurance, something of value that you invest in to protect your interests but hope you never need to use. Rebecca, our licensing and IP expert, exceeded that expectation from the first phone call; not only did I get sound advice on protecting our company, I got brilliant commercial advice that has already helped me shape future deals and increase revenue. Getting this work done was essential to protect GB3’s interests; the bonus was that the work was delivered brilliantly, quickly and has already added value to GB3.’
