Trademark
Mr.Kautsubh helped us register our brand! We tried to do this for 3 years with different lawyers and were refused. We wasted money and time. He carefully studied our case and gave us recommendations on how to get a result. We submitted new application with him and he was absolutely right! We registered the logo and then the word! Now we have a two registered trademarks! Kaustubh Nadkarni is honest, professional lawyer at a very reasonable price. We had a very difficult case and he helped us to get the result!!! Thank you so much! Excellent job! Highly recommend to everyone!

Great Attorney
I am a fitness professional and have a wellness lifestyle company. I consulted with Kaustubh in regards to a workout I had come up with done on a certain piece of equipment. He was great at explainining intellectual property law to me and putting it in layman terms. If you are looking for a trustworthy lawyer for any patent, trademark copyright or other related work, look no further.
