“We provide house inspection services across New Zealand.  We have been working with Kate for many years, both at her previous firm and at Catalyst Intellectual Property.  Kate has helped us with registering our trade marks, franchising and licensing and with stopping various third parties getting too close to our brands and trade marks.  We have found her services to be simple and quick.  There is no mucking around.  We trust her and she knows her stuff.   We have learnt a lot about the importance and value of IP and how to protect our business IP under Kate’s wise counsel and have often recommended her to other businesses and organisations.”
