Excellent IP Attorney in FL!
Chris is always timely with reliable advice that my brand can count on. I sometimes have to rethink the way I do things, but it's such a relief to know that I can count on Chris and his team to be direct and give me actual options for handling matters and protecting my IP. We will definitely be working together more in the future.

Best in the business
Attention to detail, speed and trustworthy describe our experience working with Christian. We've files multiple trademark application with him and he is by far the best in the business. Goes above and beyond in his work to ensure that we are taken care of. We do work locally, nationally and internationally and I would highly recommend him to every single one of our clients. If you need someone to get the job done and treat you like family in the process, Christian is the only option.

Professional, efficient and genuine
Sanchelima & Associates were able to answer all of my questions and guide me through the process of filing a trademark application. At no point did I feel rushed or in fear of asking the typical "stupid" questions that Im sure many first time applicants have who aren't familiar with the system. I highly recommend them for intellectual property and trademark application proceedings!

Exceptional, personable service and guidance. The level of genuine interest and care Sanchelima and Associates has taken over the best interest of my team is rare to find. Special thanks to Mr. Chris Sanchelima for his invaluable contributions to our projects. This team is on the ball and I am sure it's the same with all their clients. Their Motto is not just a tagline; they take it to heart.

"Chris is highly communicative and knowledgeable in his field. He is a pleasure to work with and has my highest recommendation."
Intellectual property Attorney | Jan 18
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Mr. Sanchelima is an asset to his clients in need of assistance with their intellectual property matters. Not only is Mr. Sanchelima extremely knowledgable, but his attention to detail and relentlessness makes him a phenomenal tool to his clients throughout their journey. Mr. Sanchelima's rapport with his clients, as well as co and opposing counsel is exemplary of civility and professionalism in an industry that seems to be moving in the opposite direction. I would personally use Mr. Sanchelima for my own intellectual property matters and I would also recommend him to my clients."

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Espousing many of the superlative qualities of his father, who founded this intellectual property law firm, Chris also exemplifies and improves on these same attributes of providing diligent, competent, and thorough legal guidance and prosecution of intellectual property rights for all of his clients. He takes a sincere personal dedication to understanding his clients positions, concepts, and ideas, always with a sharp eye on the business climate in which they will thrive, and does all things possible to protect them by choosing the right strategy. Anyone who dreams, creates, and innovates should not do so without this fine lawyer on his or her side."
