Excellent Attorney
I hired Lynn to resolve an issue that was in her area, but overlapped with an area of the law which was the bigger issue. She was very upfront about what she was able to do for me, but ultimately referred me to another attorney for a more comprehensive result. She invested a lot of her time trying to find the best person to represent me and after interviewing several, I was able to find a great fit. I was thrilled with the results. Lynne is very well versed in the law, sharp, and easy to talk to. I highly recommend her as she puts her clients first, even if it means sending you to another attorney. Thank you Lynne, you are the best!

Very grateful for her wise counsel
Lynne with Boisineau Law is a true professional. She has the qualities to which the legal profession should aspire. I found her to be Very knowledgeable, communicative, responsive, fair and respectful of my time and hers. Her counsel resolved a case that could have been more than 60 times what it actually cost me (of course, she had an exceptional client!) It's no wonder she was Ranked in the World Trademark Review 1000: The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals (2014-2018). I assume the reason that honor did not continue is her decision to leave her position with a large, well respected law firm and start her own, small, personalized practice. I'm very grateful she did I would retain her again and highly recommend her.

Thanks, Tom! I would love to be able to help you again in the future, but I hope you don't need me for such a stressful reason again. I appreciate your kind words.

Don't think twice, HIRE HER!
I don't even know where to begin. I've worked with so many different attorneys for the past 10 years and I have never met one who truly cares about their clients and actually gets the work done RIGHT for the benefit of the client! If it wasn't for Lynne, I would have been screwed with my trademark filings because the attorney that I was working with, apparently did not know what he was doing! I shared everything with Lynne and she right away pointed out the solution and as a matter of fact told me what I should tell the other attorney to fix so my trademark application gets approved and registered. Now, my application is approved and almost registered. YES! All thanks to Lynne. I'm now working with her as my attorney and blessed to have her in my team. So, if you want results, you want to work with someone who knows what they're doing and CARES about you, hit the HIRE button. ;) You will be happy with her. Good luck!

Exceeded expectations
Lynne Boisineau has been my trademark lawyer for a few years now and I can’t express how much her service meant for my piece of mind and protection for my company. Her expertise in navigating the ins and outs of trademark law and grace in translating that information into understandable language gave me the confidence I was in great hands. The level of communication from her during my application process was handled in the same way, professional, timely and efficient. Lynne was very easy to work with and far exceeded my expectations of what the trademarking process would entail. I couldn’t be happier and am confident in referring her to anyone that needs legal help. She’s amazing!

Client Centered
We have worked with and retained the services of Lynn Boisineau at both of her firms over a 15 year period. She has been a consistent and able partner in the protection of our Intellectual Property. She has demonstrated her commitment to servicing our needs in a flexible and changing environment with a clear view to maximum protection with cost containment. Her perspective, while all encompassing, lends itself equally to the smaller details and consequences of taking moderate action vs. inaction. She educates and advises as needed. We recommend her without reservation.

An invaluable advisor in protecting our growing brand
Lynne Boisineau and her team have been advising us on our global intellectual property strategy since the early days of our company. Commercially minded and legally buttoned up, Lynne has ensured that we have a solid and protectable trademark and copyright portfolio, and that our brand is protected for years to come. Lynne has also been invaluable when it comes to litigating aspects of our portfolio, identifying cost effective strategies to protect our brand, marks and images, avoiding foreseeable pitfalls, and ensuring that we as a team are well equipped on a day to day basis. As an ex-lawyer myself, I applaud Lynne on the forthright, objective and practical advice she gives.
