I had trade copyright issues and required a specialist in this area. After completing my due diligence, I contacted William (Bill) Herman of Herman IP. William is a specialist in his field and he is technically astute with in-depth knowledge covering all aspects of trade infringement. I found William to be pleasant to deal with, approachable and he was able to give me wise counsel with my problems. I could not have navigated these complex issues without him.
