I’ve known Andy for roughly 5 years now. ALCOM Inc. engaged Andy to be responsible for all of our Intellectual Property in both the US and Canada. He’s done a great job at registering marks that I anticipated were not registrable. His analysis and conclusions are in depth and accurate – the markings of a real expert. He has achieved great results both timely and cost effectively. On top of his legal ability, he’s a great human being that gives lawyers a good name. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone needing IP work.
Integrity & Thoroughness
Good attorneys are hard to find, so we were certainly pleased to make the acquaintance of Andy Zulieve. Has been invaluable, not only acting on our behalf to protect our intellectual properties, but also as a solid source of counsel on a variety of legal issues.
Overall Rating: Excellent
We’ve used Andy on a few different occasions. We’ve used his services for writing new contracts, used him to acquire a trade mark for our logo and we have used him for collections. He is excellent in all aspects. He researches all areas of the case instead of just putting something out there with no basis. Andy will let you know when he thinks that it is in your best interest to walk away. Definitely not your average attorney.
Respectful & Responsive
I’ve used Mr. Zulieve as our corporate and my personal attorney for three years and consider Mr. Zulieve my all-purpose attorney. He has successfully handled a wide variety of legal issues ranging from real estate matters to publishing contracts. His ability to be so versatile has been a real asset to a small firm such as ours. Andy is unfailingly polite and respectful which is appreciated when dealing with matters that can be both unpleasant and stressful. Additionally, he always replies to our different queries very promptly—there’s no waiting and worrying.
We are always happy to recommend Mr. Zulieve to both clients and colleagues as someone who is pleasant to deal with and who will represent their interests honestly.
