"Alistair Chan is very knowledgeable in dealing with new technology, electronics, computer software, mechanical and smart devices including connected vehicles. Even though he was on vacation he responded quickly to my request. He understands both creative inventors and the machination of the U.S. patent filing process. He is very easy to work with and works well under pressure."
