"Catherine provided Trademark advice for my startup software company. She is extremely knowledgable about both the big picture strategy and also the minutia of trademark law, identifying and remediating key hurdles that my company hadn’t considered. Catherine is very efficient in explaining technical detail and was critical to developing our trademark strategy.
