“Saunders & Silverstein provides extraordinarily high-level service. The team have deep expertise as subject matter experts; they are incredibly responsive, they are creative in their thinking about the work they do and how they do it, they are very client- and results-oriented, and come at a price considerably below that of larger law firms. They are also very personally engaging and are a pleasure to work with. I would give them an unqualified recommendation to anyone looking for IP counsel.” For trademark work, the names to know are Aaron Silverstein and Jamie Sternberg. “Aaron is skilled, responsible, effective, timely and, above all, passionate about his work. He provides common-sense direction and advice regarding effective brand representation and trademark applications. I would highly recommend his services.” “Jamie is a great IP lawyer and a wonderful person, who is very much appreciated by her clients. She is experienced, professional, reliable and respects the client in terms of goals and budget. She has deep subject area knowledge and a thorough understanding of the issues at play. Her advice is always on point, helpful and professional. I will continue to work with Jamie exclusively where possible on any needed outsourcing and general advice related to trademark law in the future. I can definitively recommend Jamie Sternberg and her firm, Saunders & Silverstein.”
