If you are like most businesses, you want clear actionable advice from your lawyers that does not sit on the fence. Chances are you also want to know how much you’re going to be charged before work is carried out so you don’t receive any surprise invoices. At Azrights this is what you get.
As an in house lawyer, before founding Azrights, Shireen had been on the receiving end of advice that was technically excellent, but commercially poor. She was also once stung by a law firm when she was a relatively inexperienced young lawyer. The firm did a Rolls Royce job and charged accordingly when all that was required was quick commercial guidance. So the ethos at Azrights is to be commercial in its approach. Few law firms will give you price certainty because their estimates are based on how long it might take them to do your work. And only very rarely will they be able to tell you how long they will take.
As we don’t base our fees on how long a job will take, we can offer price certainty and put you in charge of your legal fees. After all, we ourselves wouldn’t want to buy services on an open ended basis, so we make sure we don’t base our prices for non-contentious work on uncertainties such as how long a piece of work might take and hourly rates.
What that means for you, is that when you use us you can always expect to know the price for your legal work in advance of our doing it. Unless the scope of the legal work changes the price will remain the same, regardless of how long it takes us to do it. Our promise is that you will never receive a surprise invoice from us.
We make sure we devote appropriate time and energy into ensuring you can build a brand that is sustainable and bullet proof.

“Dear Michael having you deal with the patent was a real great help, nothing was too much trouble. If I felt wary I only had to call or email you and you always resolved the situation.
When I started contacting the big US companies your advice was invaluable. Do I sign their confidence form? You were there to support me with help and advice.
When I had questions, am I covered in the US? Am I covered here or there? You gave me answers straight away.
I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone.
I have sent my patented invention to one of the 10 biggest companies in the US they have shown great interest and it went before the Senior Vice President of the company seven days ago.
I have got this far because of you. THANK YOU.”
“We decided to trade mark our new software for Investment firms, AlphaPoint, to promote the brand. Azrights advised us that a European Community trade mark would be best initially to cover our main target market. The application went smoothly, and Azrights provided a very professional and cost effective service. They also saved us money by warning and advising us about the various scams associated with trade mark registration”.
