I've worked with Brian for 5+ years as our company has grown from 5 people to 45. Brian is more than "just" an attorney and is a trusted advisor to our firm. In additional to quickly and competently handling any issue we have related to internet law, Brian has kept us in the loop on upcoming changes and gives sound advice that has helped us protect our brand. I wish every attorney was as competent as Brian.
I found Brian Hall online when our company in Chicago was a victim of cybersquatting by a party outside of the United States. We could not have made a better choice. We were concerned that because this was in international issue, we would have no recourse. In addition to being an expert in this area of law, Brian was fast, efficient and laser-focused. Within days, the problem was resolved to our benefit and complete satisfaction.
Brian did not stop there. He asked if our logos and trademarks were up-to-date. They were not. Some of our trademarks had lapsed; others were never registered. He was instrumental in ensuring that all our logos and trademarks were properly registered in the U.S. and in Mexico. This was absolutely critical to securing our brand names. Finally, Brian suggested that we have a signed agreement with our network of distributors, and he provided us with an excellent distributor agreement that clearly defines the responsibilities of both parties.
I highly recommend working with Brian Hall. He not only took care of our immediate domain name problem, he focused our attention on other aspects of securing our rights to our brand and positioned our company for the future.
Brian initially helped me with a web domain trademark infringement case. Once I discovered how knowledgable he is around internet and domain law, I decided to exclusively work with him for all legal matters for my online publishing company and software companies. He's a super sharp guy, who's quick to get things done on time and within budget. I highly recommend him.

I was originally referred to Brian by a friend that told me Brian was one of the smartest guys he knew. I learned that he was a specialist in the fields of IP Protection and innovative law practices, and also had a very good understanding of internet marketin, domain names, and the issues currently affecting all companies who value their placement within the world wide web. Since originally using Brian just for trademark assistance and filings, we've since expanded to use him and his firm for patent work, contract manufacturing agreements, sub-contractor contracts, litigation prevention, complex business opportunity agreements, and much more. I love that I can go to Brian for just about anything, and if he can't handle it (which is rare, but one example is in-depth franchise law), he'll refer me elsewhere. His prices are incredibly fair (half the rates of similar lawyers in Los Angeles (where I live) and his quality likely surpasses the attorneys at the big firms. Why? He cares about his clients and really cares about his reputation. He comes from a relatively small firm and a small town but he has huge ambitions and bigtime knowledge. For us, it's the perfect fit. Our business has only increased in value since hiring Brian and I'm happy to say we're getting a damn good deal. You'll be fortunate to work with him.
