For over 10 years, Cooper Mills have guided me to ensure my business is safe from imitators trading with my brand. Not only do Cooper Mills have the expertise in trademark law, they are extremely professional, responsive to our needs and explain legal jargon in plain English! I highly recommend the Cooper Mills team for businesses who seek a value added legal service above and beyond traditional advisors.
