How RDTM Can Help You

 

 

RDTM Trade Marks Ltd was established by Rebecca Davis in 2017. Recognised as "highly organised, practical and helpful' by the Legal 500 and as a Rising Star in IP Stars, Rebecca now works as a freelance consultant where flexibility is the key.

 

Start-ups/individuals/SMEs - Rebecca has advised numerous start-ups on their trade mark requirements, taking into account the very unique challenges that a new company faces;

Law firms/trade mark firms - Rebecca can help if you are a law firm without a trade mark prosecution offering, but who would like to be able to offer this additional service to your clients. Alternatively, if you already have a trade mark practice, but require shorter term cover, for example, to cover maternity leave, a period where you may be temporarily short of staff or where you need extra assistance for a large project, Rebecca can help;

You may be considering moving away from your current trade mark advisors. Rebecca works on a consultancy basis with law firms and specialist IP firms, so is well placed to assist you in moving your IP portfolio to advisors who will best meet your requirements.
