The overall customer journey was nothing less than holistic. Tony practically unfolded his knowledge in simple terms, providing highly targeted and tactical advice, by asking me simple questions. He helped me to paint a strategic map, with various options that injected confidence not only in me, but in the licensor too, with continuous assistance throughout all discussions… I would have no doubt encouraging anyone looking for specialised advice on IP management to work with Tony and the team at Mathys & Squire Consulting Ltd.”
