What my clients say

"We used Nelligan Law for our trademark registration and everything they did was very smooth and easy for us. Got the job done, cost effective and great communication. Would hire them again."

"This is hands down the best law firm I ever worked with. I worked with Erin & she was amazing since the beginning. We received a cease & desist letter in regards to a trademark issue, and Erin & her team were able to guide me through the whole process. . It was so easy dealing with them, all my questions were answered promptly & Erin is so attentive to details and extremely knowledgeable about the law."

"We've had a fantastic experience with Nelligan Law. Erin McEwen secured us international protection in Canada and has been a real joy and pleasure to work with. I couldn't recommend highly enough."
