I wish to express my sincere thanks to Adrian Hocking, Partner at Albright IP Limited as well as his Personal Assistant, Ms. Lynne Horton. As an overseas client, I can truly say that both Adrian and Lynne were extremely supportive throughout my patent applications process. I particularly found Adrian to be diligent, tenacious, clear, concise, commercially aware, patient and extremely easy to communicate with. As a result of the support of Adrian and Lynne, I have successfully obtained two patents. I am truly grateful for all of their efforts and I fully intend using the services of Albright IP again within the not-so-distant future.
