What our Clients Say

Bob Scales

My experience with Zach was phenomenal. I brought him an infringement issue. He outlined the various plays from end to end and thoroughly explained the pros and cons. We mapped out a strategy and he executed. His approach was professional and aggressive. He prevailed and followed up to ensure compliance. What a great experience for a problem I thought was going to turn into a prolonged ordeal. Very competent and focused guy. Absolutely no reservations in recommending Zach to anyone.

I have been working with Founders legal since 2017. Yuri has always provided me with guidance on all technical endeavors and general questions. He has gone above and beyond at times to answer “one off” questions for me in particular scenarios. He is one of the few counsels who are relational rather than purely transactional. That is a breath of fresh air. Highly recommend them.

When I developed my last product WindPouch they took care of all of my patents and trademarks as well as helping to organize a team to defend it when needed. Yuri and Andrei are great and its been a pleasure working with them.

As innovators in the Daily Fantasy Sports industry, Yuri & Founders Legal were great partners as we envisioned what the future would look like. While pioneering our niche at PrizePicks, we believed it would eventually become a competitive category while submitting our International Utility Patent in 2019, and by 2023, we were absolutely correct. With the space becoming more & more competitive by the year, our utility & design patents will grow in significance. We are eternally appreciative of the time the Founders Legal team spent with us to get it right as well as the time & conviction they had to see it through!
