Simon Hartley, Business Founder

“Virtuoso Legal have given us tremendous value. I knew there were holes in our IP protection, but I didn’t know what or where. Virtuoso Legal helped us identify those holes which we’re now filling. I’m a great believer that finding partners in business is more beneficial than finding suppliers. I consider Virtuoso Legal to be a valued partner. I have no hesitation recommending them.”
