I simply could not have asked for a better intellectual property law firm. I’ve been using Founders Legal for both my Patent and Trademark needs, and they have consistently exceeded my expectations. I can focus on starting and growing my new business while knowing the legal side of things are being taken care of by a very experienced and talented team. Communication is open and collaborative, their work is very thorough and of very high quality, and they really know how to make you feel like a valued client – especially new entrepreneurs like myself. They’ll go above and beyond to help your business succeed.

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.
