“I have worked with Elizabeth, Owen, and Crown for over a decade and when we established Burley Law, they were the obvious choice for looking after our clients’ interests in the USA.  It has been a delight to work with them.  The great thing is that they fit perfectly with our own ways of working: they are personable, expert, and always straightforward.  Even when the law is very complex, we get a clear answer – and despite being based in the UK, we have always had very responsive and attentive service.  This makes it so much easier for us to support our clients when they are looking to operate in the USA.  It is clear that they have built a very strong rapport with their clients which has led to a very loyal following of long-standing clients – and we are pleased to be one of them!”

Elizabeth and Owen have been great partners for SKINN ever since we were referred to them a couple years ago. Trying to keep tabs on all the necessary filings, actions, oppositions, etc., in order to maintain the integrity of our intellectual property would be a full time job for someone on our end. However, working with Crown has made the process much more manageable as they guide us through all the necessary steps, putting them into layman’s terms along the way. They know the status of each and every mark, in each and every jurisdiction, at all times. The level of organization is not one we’d had in the past and has made utilization an easy chore for our team.

Elizabeth and Owen have been invaluable to us as we’ve dealt with an explosion of Trademark and IP infringements over the last several years. Their approach has always been personal, yet professional, and I appreciate the fact that we’re treated like partners as opposed to just clients. They welcome the insights we have about our own brand, applying their expertise along with the proprietary knowledge we provide. I can’t emphasize how important that is to a niche brand such as Thrasher Magazine.

We have worked with Elizabeth, Owen, and Crown for several years and the things that stand out for me about their practice is that I always appreciate their quick response, detailed follow-up, and any special requests that we have they always work with us to go above and beyond and exceed our expectations.

“Elizabeth and Owen, they’ve got it goin’,

And treat us like we’re Kings.
More importantly, they know IP,
And entertainment things.

Years ago, when times were slow,
We “poked the bear” you see,
But Elizabeth the Great, did not hesitate,
And Owen joined with She.

Together bound, they then unwound,
The complexities of marks.
They fought for us, they earned our trust,
And silenced [Name Withheld due to Confidentiality Agreement]’s barks!

And now we stand, astride the land,
We’re Financial Avengers®
We own that name and the content game,
Is ours for eternity.1

But this odd ballad, pale and pallid,
Cannot explain to thee,
The honest crutch and human touch,
That Crown®, LLP is to we.

They are our friends, until the end,
We rely on them constantly.
So don’t be stupid – it’s undisputed –
Hire them instantly.”

1 As Elizabeth Rest, Owen Seitel, and Crown, LLP will assuredly inform you, no trademark lasts forever, and eternity, given its infinite state, cannot be quantified. Therefore, this sentence is hyperbole, and our testimonial makes no claims to the ‘eternal’ nature of Crown, LLP’s work in trademark, entertainment, and intellectual property law. We do, however, own our marks now and in the future – here, there, and everywhere – and because of that, we highly recommend their services. Not only are they exceptional attorneys, they are also delightful human beings.

I work with dozens and dozens of trademark attorneys around the world and I rank Elizabeth among the best. She is extremely knowledgeable, responsive, efficient, and a pleasure to work with. I consider her an integral part of Sunsweet Growers’ global brand protection efforts and she has my highest recommendation.

Owen has provided me valuable counsel and representation in my endeavors in the film industry for decades. In my work as a screenwriter, Owen has assisted with the negotiation and documentation of option and sale agreements as well as counsel concerning guild issues and co-writing scenarios. As a producer and director Owen has assisted throughout the development and production process, from contracting with personnel and vendors through distribution. I highly recommend Owen, Elizabeth and Crown to anyone involved in the creative industries.

For nearly fifteen years I’ve worked with Owen and Elizabeth of Crown on everything from publishing contracts to copyright issues and establishing trademarks. The longevity of our relationship speaks volumes. Owen and Elizabeth have been incredibly helpful on all fronts over the years and I continue to value their insight, advice, and thoroughness immensely.

Owen and Elizabeth have provided me trusted and valuable counsel on legal and business issues for many years. Owen’s knowledge of the law applicable to fitness/martial arts studios, and Elizabeth’s knowledge of trademark law, has kept my operations on the right side of the law and, with their assistance, we established a successful instructor training and certification program, which allowed me to expand my offerings. Recently, when it became necessary to quickly expand our online training program, Owen and Elizabeth were there to assist with the myriad intellectual property issues inherent in creating and distributing audio-visual content online and securing our branding elements as more of our training moved from in-person to online.
