Trademark Law

My company engages several outside law firms for our trademark work. Moore & Van Allen is my go-to firm. They are incredibly responsive, often living up to the concept that many fail at, which is to respond within hours of a client request, and at most within a day (often the same day). They are thorough in their work, and have deep expertise in trademark law. And they establish a great rapport not only with the IP legal team, but our marketing department and all business unit stakeholders that they interact with. I can't say enough good things about this law firm, and about Arlene Hanks in particular!

Moore & Van Allen have a great local presence in Charlotte, and have given us solid support as a small local business. They are professional, cover all the various corporate law specialities with ease as they move us appropriately within their firm to ensure we are getting the support and attention of the specialist required. As a small business that obviously does not have inside counsel, they really are like an extension of our company as they are always there when we need them no matter now small or large the task may be.

Jeremy Hale Mountain Khakis

Corporate Law

Moore & Van Allen's team works as if they are a part of our company. They know us, the context of our business and past, and the general boundaries of how we operate. Hand-offs to functional experts within their firm are very clean and everyone treats us as if they were the lead attorney - with familiarity, ownership, personal engagement. We have utilized M&VA for a myriad of functional areas and i appreciate their general level of knowledge on almost every issue raised. They ride a good balance of "advisor", providing clear legal opinion and counsel, but realizing that certain things are then for us to determine - and then they support those fully, given they are not crazy things! I don't enjoy having legal issues but when i do i LOVE working with them.
