What Our Clients Say

I am a long time coming entrepreneur and although I executed the business aspects of my brand correctly, I had no idea where to start legally in terms of rights and intellectual property protections. I came across The Wang IP Law Group by chance, and was fortunate enough to be introduced to the lead attorney, Tommy Wang. Tommy knew I didn’t know where to start but he patiently took the time to explain the sort of intricacies and nuances that may occur as part of a now, happy and successful trademark owner! I will certainly be coming back should I encounter any legal issues. Thank you Tommy!

Valerie C.

Just wanted to take some time to thank Tommy. As a student, I’ve been looking to find my place in the e-commerce market and start a business online for the longest time but never felt confident in the legal jargon of it all. Communicating with Tommy was easy and most importantly, educational. Despite my most basic questions on what is and isn’t allowed or what I should be careful with in regards to existing trademarks and intellectual property, I was treated with great patience and support. Tommy’s help served to be an even greater encouragement for me to quickly get my business up and running!

Tiffaney Y.
