Insurance SaaS Solution
Reinsurers, Government, Farmers Software Tech product
"We need software developers to do work for us, and advice on setting up our technology-based business. Our tech should shake up the insurance market.
We needed all sorts of legal advice: software development contracts, dodging open source software technology bullets, assessing suitability of open source software for what we want to do, managing intellectual property, structuring investment, best practice when investors come knocking, granting options to interested investors and contracts for deals to be done with suppliers and clients. We can also see what isn’t going to work sooner rather than later.
We’re side-stepping problems that we might have otherwise stepped in later on, and all the hassle that brings. We’re moving forwards fast."
Energy Company: IP Dispute
Intellectual Property Dispute
Constant Power Services had an intellectual property dispute with some suppliers to the business. The IP advice was absolutley spot on. A subtle and controlled response to what needed to be done. Would definitley use Hall Ellis again for IP rights advice again.
Passing Off Claim: Hopeless
Proper Legal Advice
We had a passing off claim which appeared from nowhere. It scared the daylights of me. After we took some intellectual property advice it became clear that the solicitors for the claimant didn’t have a clue what they were talking about but that they were banking on us not having proper legal advice.
Leigh was highly available during the stressful periods, told us what things meant in the dispute and how it was going to turn out all in simple language we could understand. And it did. Impressive professionalism. Very happy with the work he did and the way it turned out.
Intellectual Property Rights in 60' Patrol Boat
Clear IP advice in Plain Language
My business was looking to get hold of some intellectual property rights in a mould for a 60’ cruiser to manufacture for the military deployments. We had to check out the IP rights to make sure that we wouldn’t be exposing our customers to IP rights infringement claims. We also needed to acquire ballistics software for control weapons on boats we manufacture.
We’re getting clear IP advice in plain language. It doesn’t leave much for doubt in what we’re being advised. For me, it’s high recommended for intellectual property advice, without the pretence and doesn’t treat us like a billing target.
