“As owner of AMR Consulting, a new company looking for qualified professional and cost-effective legal support, I engaged Virtual Law’s Liz Sproston to carry out two assignments. Liz conducted a trademark search and then an application for my company logo, and also prepared a copyright assignment document. My customer experience was positive. Virtual Law delivered on time and within budget, keeping me closely informed along the way. My business received exactly the support it needed, with no hassle and no nasty surprises. From my perspective, Virtual Law through Liz Sproston delivered exactly what it said on the tin.”
