This is what some of our clients have had to say about us:

“This serves to confirm that we have used David Shoolman on numerous occasions in connection with various trade mark issues affecting our company. We have found David to act accurately and efficiently on the matters that he has handled on our behalf. His advice has always been sound and he has kept us fully up to date on progress being made during the term of the matter.

“My requirements at the time were to initiate a number of patents. These patents were quite complex in scope and far reaching in development. The end result is to be found on the company website at I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending David [Shoolman] for any of the work that he undertakes on my behalf. His diligence and commitment whenever a complexity has arisen has been and continues to be a pleasure to discuss and resolve the issue at hand. His integrity and honesty cannot be questioned as it is above reproach. His total professionalism is, to be frank, one of the positive things that I appreciate and admire. As a result of his experience I have placed all my Patent and Trade Mark requirements into his capable hands I have total satisfaction in all his work and I know that no matter how complex or trivial some of my questions are he has always given me the time and absolute attention the work requires. I know that matters can be left in his hands, which I can place there with total reliance, so that I don’t have to worry about it. He has the experience and ability to deal with the matters properly and to provide me, as he has in the past, with good advice as and when required. He always provides me with the very highest level of service and spends time explaining the various options as they occur. I can only say that over the years his total commitment to me and my work has been of inestimable value to me as I know that he has his finger on the button as and when needed and I place absolute trust in his abilities. I have no hesitation in giving this testimonial as it is so deserved.”

“David Shoolman has been attending to my patent work in Australia since 2006. During this time, he has kept me fully informed on the status of my patent application, and has given me clear advice on the options available to me at each stage of the process. I have appreciated David’s attention to detail, and he has shown that he has understood the technology of my invention. I have also found his costs at Ascot Martin to be extremely reasonable for the work done. As a result of carefully considered and thorough submissions that David prepared and filed at the Patent Office, the Patent Office examiner withdrew his objections to my patent application, and following this, the application was accepted. This is a significant advantage to my business. I have no hesitation in recommending David Shoolman and Ascot Martin to others seeking a Patent Attorney in Australia.”
