I would not hesitate to recommend Ouzman IP Ltd. As a sole trader with a small business in it’s infancy; the whole IP, Copyright and Trade Mark “thing” just seemed mind boggling and to be honest pretty scary! However, it is something that every business needs to address and there is no better time to do it than in the early days.
Bev helped me to understand IP and Copyright and how if affects my business and how to protect it. She also guided me through some complications I came across along the way; it no longer seems as scary and I feel happier knowing I am protecting my business in the long-term.
Ouzman IP to the rescue! It was such a relief to come across an IP specialist who was able to explain the ins and outs of trademark registration and copyright to me in easily understandable, plain English – not once did Bev Ouzman baffle me with legalese or IP jargon. Bev worked through all of my small business needs with me in a clear and concise way, and outlined all the factors I needed to consider for trademark registration and copyright protection of my own work. Bev took the pain out of a complex process, and spent valuable time getting to know me and my business to accurately assess the level of legal protection required. At no point did I feel pressured to go for legal protection beyond my needs or budget. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ouzman IP to any business looking for advice and support to safeguard their all-important intellectual property.
Ouzman IP was instrumental in us securing patent for our products in the UK and USA, as well as registered design status in the EU.
After a terrible experience with a previous IP attorney, we came to Bev to see if she was able to salvage our entire patent process, which was in real danger of completely collapsing. Despite the challenge of working within the constraints put upon her by the previous attorney, not only was she was able to rescue our entire patent application, but ultimately deliver on its successful completion.
Bev’s knowledge and experience, combined with her effort to understand the needs of our company, was invaluable in advising us what was worth pursuing and what actions might result in wasted money.
As someone who approached IP with no previous experience, I cannot recommend Ouzman IP enough to guide you or your company through what can be a long, daunting, and potentially expensive process.
I only wish I had started the IP process with Ouzman IP first!!
Bev Ouzman was referred to me by a friend when I was in urgent need of an IP lawyer. She was clearly very knowledgeable and took care of all my IP needs. I only wish I had worked with her from the start, rather than trying to register my trademarks on my own! It was a pleasure to work with her, and I highly recommend her services.

Loch Ness – Whisky or Mystery?
Getting your facts straight at the start of a trade mark dispute can be invaluable – as shown in this case about a trade mark centred on one of Scotland’s most iconic lochs.
