"Caroline’s strengths are far more than just her expertise. She first tries to understand your business, its model and ambitions, and where trademarks and IP fit in. She has a natural ability to make you feel that you are her only client and she would drop anything else to make things happen for you. She challenges, can say no and gives you options, including new ideas, without ever making you feel you have lost control. Caroline is worth her weight in gold."
