"Hired another European firm to file for a EUIPO trademark and got rejected. Somebody recommended Speyer. Lodewijk fixed the errors the other firm had made. Genuinely one of the best customer experiences I've ever had! No matter what questions I've had or updates I've needed to make, Lodewijk and his team has been so responsive and incredibly helpful. Highly recommend!"
