I have known Larry Zerner for over 20 years and he has handled numerous trademarks for us. He has also skillfully orchestrated the sale of trade names and handled a variety of other business matters for us with care and conscientiousness. I recommend him highly for his professionalism, promptness, effectiveness and most important to me, honesty.
I have worked with Larry Zerner now for several years and have found his work to be uniformly excellent. He has been a great pleasure to work with and I would heartily recommend him to anyone seeking help with their IP issues.
Larry Zerner has been of immense service to our legal copyright and contract needs as a publisher of popular books. We are very impressed by his highly professional and successful work as an attorney for us. Thank you, Larry!
